Solecisms and Barbarisms



marynualaMarynuala on 01/30/2006

SolecismsandBarbarisms Photo Many grammarians tear their hair
When folks use "their" in place of "there"
And sometimes when the voce's is versa
They say that "they're" is very much wursa
Bernard W Joseph 1998

After reading the above quotation, I was inspired to write this quiz on English Grammar. Under the two main banners of solecisms and barbarisms, it examines incorrectness in grammar, which ranges from faulty syntax to mispronunciation of words. I hope you enjoy the quiz.
