Adverb modify করে- Adjective, Verb & Adverb কে।

কিছু কিছু Comparative degree জায়গায় ব্যবহার করা যায় না। যেমন:

Parallel মানেই তো সমান্তরাল। ২ টি লাইর বেশি বা কম সমান্তরাল তো হতে পারে না। অর্থাৎ

= These two lines are parallel.

  • This box is more square than the others.

= This box is square than.

Double Negatives

দুটি Negative word একসাথে বসানো ফলে Sentence টির Positive অর্থও প্রকাশ করেনা বরং একটা ভূল হয়ে যায়। এটাই মূলত Double error . যেমন:

  • Arif wasn’t rarely present at meetings.

= Arif was rarely present at meetings.

  • Dhaka had scarcely no rain last year.

= Dhaka had scarcely any rain last year.

  • Zoa & Tashfiq don’t watch movies seldom.

Pronoun Usage

Pronoun সবসময় একটি নির্দিষ্ট Noun কে Replace করে।

  • Akib and Samid went for shopping but he couldn’t buy anything.

Run on Sentence

দুটি Independent clause  full stop বা semi colon ছাড়া অন্য কোনো punctuation marks দিয়ে যুক্ত হলে, বাক্য দুটি দেখতে সঠিক মনে হলেও আসলে তা ভুল। এটাই  run on sentence এর মূল সমস্যা। যেমন:

  • It is really sunny, I need an umbrella.

দুটি Independent clauseকখনোই (,) দ্বারা যুক্ত হবেনা। এটি Run on sentence.

= It is really sunny./; I need an umbrella.

Appositive এর মাধ্যমে কোনো Sentence কে complex এ রুপান্তর না করে Simple অবস্থাতেই নতুন তথ্য যোগ করা যায়।

যার ব্যাপারে তথ্য যোগ করব তার ঠিক পরে ‘ দুটি Comma-র’ মাঝে Appositive add করতে হবে।

Example: Mehedi, a young rapper, is a genuinely good guy.

Collective Subjects

যখন একটি Word দিয়ে একত্রে অনেকজনকে এটি Subject হিসেবে বুঝানো হয় তখন তাকে Collective Subject বলে। যেমন-

The jury havehas  reached its decision.

এখানে, প্রত্যেকটি Judge একত্রিত হয়ে একটি সিদ্ধান্ত তে পেীছিয়েছে।

The jury is arguing over several issues.

এখানে, Jury-এর সদস্যগণ আলাদা আলাদা হয়ে argue করেছে। তাই Verb singular না হয়ে plural হবে।

= The jury are arguing over several issues.

Subject Verb Agreement

Subject singular হলে Verb singular হবে, এবং

Subject plural হলে Verb plural হবে।


His knowledge(Subject Singular) of history aid(Plural) him in his work.

= his knowledge(Subject Singular) of history aids(Singular) him in his work.

Subject with accompaniment

Sakib, accompanied by Shams, were/ was enjoying the game.

সবসময় Preposition এর আগের Subject অনুসারে Verb ব্যবহৃত। Preposition এর পরের Subject যদি থাকে তাহলে Avoid করতে হয়।

As well as, along with, beside, together with, accompanied by, in addition to etc. থাকলে Verb প্রথম Subject অনুযায়ী বসবে।

He along with his parents have/ has attendend the party.
