  1. Hello. Thanks for the informative article.
    Yes, errors in the text – a thing not pleasant. And often they are committed, as they say, “by stupidity.” I do not want to offend anyone, I mean only that the mistake was made due to inattention, a “stupid” mistake. A typo, for example. But sometimes mistakes in texts occur and by ignorance how correctly the word is spelled. Or, there is also the “first reading effect”. There are many options … One way or another, each of us makes mistakes in the texts. But not everyone sees his mistake and corrects it in time.
    In addition to the summary, grammatical errors also occur in student argumentative or other essay. Therefore, before giving your text to a teacher, a recruiter, etc., let someone read your paper. And for sure, he will see and correct your mistakes (if any).
