Grammar Repair Shop: What’s wrong with these sentences?

by on
in Workplace Communication

1. Come quick or you’ll miss the bus.

2. Hank felt badly about missing the deadline.

3. Which would be best, a raise or an extra vacation?

4. Speak slower when you answer the phones.

Answers:

1. Replace "quick" with "quickly." You need an adverb to modify the verb “come.”

2. Replace "badly" with "bad." Saying he feels badly implies there’s something wrong with Hank’s ability to feel.

3. Replace "best" with "better." When comparing two things, use "better." When comparing three things or more, use "best."

4. Replace "slower" with "more slowly." Again, an adverb is needed to modify “speak.”
