Welcome to Grammar Lesson Monday!
This continuous series will address many common grammar mistakes made in the media and that I've seen more than once. I strive to make the world a better place with good grammar.
Today, we will learn about double negatives.
These are easy to catch if you read them aloud to yourself.
Here is the incorrect form:
I did not talk to nobody on the flight.
It's trying to say you didn't talk to people on the flight.
It actually, should be...
I did not talk to anybody on the flight.
Only one negative is needed to get your point across.
That's it for today. Celebrate good grammar!
