Dr. John’s Grammar Quiz #15


Grammar Quiz #14 Garrison scores again, but for not quite the right reason. “May” should be “might”, he says. The reason we have a  problem is that “may have” indicates that it’s still possible they won. They didn’t. It should be “might have won.”

Dr. John’s Grammar Quiz #15:  Can you spot the glaring grammatical error in this sentence? “A first time author at age 66, McCourt’s memoir has topped the best seller list and won critical acclaim.”
