INTRODUCTION

As part of my English language teaching tasks at the school, I had to edit dissertations, scholarly papers, articles and reports and polish them from the language point of view. The corrections I made helped some of my colleagues at the university to get printed in some of the most prestigious scholarly journals and publications. But as I was editing and teaching, I found that many of the errors were recurrent in the scores of dissertations and hundreds of papers, articles and reports I was asked to have a look at. Then, I began collecting these errors and tabulating them. In the course of time, the corpus grew to thousands of examples, many of which I included in the handouts I gave to my students. Talking about errors in the class and how to identify and correct them is something students enjoy most. But one word of caution: teachers will have to present the errors to their students as anonymously as possible. As teachers, our job is not to embarrass our students. Our job is to encourage and motivate them

The Purpose
This book is specifically written to improve the skill of writing in English. It is the product of almost a decade of teaching, editing and researching at the university. There is no shortage of books written in English and targeting English language learning errors. But I regret to say that most of the stuff I have seen is rarely based on authentic material and samples gathered over a long period of time
This book is corpus-based and is meant primarily to help readers write English properly, without errors if possible. It is designed both as a textbook and a publication that can be used by the majority of people as a guide on how to improve their English writing skills
