5 Must Know Rules of English
When a language is given to us we adopt it as well as adapt it. If we adopt it in its original form, then
such any language errors will not occur. But mostly we try to get it adapted in our own way which leads
to some common errors in using that language. The English language, when it comes to a non-native
English speaker, is preordained to take the form and tone of his native language. The non-native English
speakers exhibit pronunciation differences in their speech which is the consequence of imperfect
learning and practice of English language by such speakers. This is majorly due to the transference of the
phonological rules from their native language into their English speech (which is called "interference") or
by the implementation of strategies similar to those used in the acquisition of their native language.
Innovative pronunciations for English sounds may also be created by them which would not be found if
the speaker's first language had been English.
Students at the university or college level, who belong to the cadre of non-native speakers of the English
language, often complain that English is difficult for them. They feel that they will not achieve much
fluency in the language as the indigenous speakers. On the other hand, native speakers have absorbed
the language along with its fundamental rules as they grew up. However, if the native speakers learn
the language under proper guidance and mentorship, they gradually learn it with all the technical
details. This was felt by the assignment writing experts who are themselves good at writing in English.
They come in touch with many students drawing from various cultural and regional backgrounds; from
their experience they have felt that student hailing from non-native English speaking world speak it
Common Errors that go Unnoticed
Students who speak English as their second language are better at it rather than the native English
speakers. So, let͛s go through the rules that most of the scholars are unaware of.
͚That͛ and ͚which͛
It is a common notion that ͚that͛ and ͚which͛ can be used interchangeably. It is also wrong to think that
͚which͛ should be used in the sentences have a formal tone. This is not true at all, as the rule specifies:
The word ͞that͟ is used to define.
And, the word ͞which͟ is used to inform, or add extra information.
For example: The food that she cooked is made of prunes, which were brought by her friend from
͚As͛ and ͚since͛
Here is another common slip-up among students: the correct use of ͚as͛ and ͚since͛. The rules for these
two words are:
a. ͚As͛ can be used in the place of ͚because͛.
b. ͚As͛ is casual, but ͚since͛ is temporal.
͚Like͛ and ͚such as͛
This is another common mistake that is made by the speakers in the implementation of both the words
accurately. But as per the rule:
You should use ͚like͛ when you want to point out the similarities.
You should use ͚such as͛ when you are giving examples.
Words ending with ͚-ed͛ vs. ͚-nt͛ to indicate past tense
It is quite confusing whether a word should end with ͞-nt͟ or ͞-ed͟. Suppose, what is the correct form of
͚learn͛ in past tense- learnt or learned? According to the rule:
͞-ed͟ is the past tense form.
͞-nt͟ is the adjectival form.
For example, ͞Sam burned the paper͟ and ͞The paper is burnt͟.
Format for writing the dates
Historical dates: While writing a date in History, you write AD (Anno Domini) or BC (Before
Christ). What you must know is that ͞AD͟ is mentioned before the date, and ͞BC͟ is written
Normal format of dates: The confusion looms over the format of writing the dates too. The
best way to write the date is in a format: number+ st/nd/rd/th + name of the month + year.
This format quite simple and convenient.
Format of dates in important documents: If you have to write dates on highly classified and
legal documents, the best way is to use this format: number+ st/nd/rd/th + of + name of
the month+ year.
