Proofreading: Brief explanation

Proofreading refers to analyzing text content to eliminate errors. It refers to grammatical errors, such as spelling, grammar and punctuation. Proofreading normally does not refer to subjective word choice or other substantive changes.

Proofreading: Detailed explanation

No author is immune to careless mistakes, and people frequently make errors within their own content. Reading aloud is one way to detect errors.

Common errors include:

  • Spelling errors
    • Distinction between “you’re” and “your”
    • Distinction between “there”, “they’re”, and “their”
    • Distinction between “accept” and “except”
    • Distinction between “affect” and “effect”
  • Punctuation errors
    • Commas
    • Apostrophes
    • Periods
  • Passive and active verbs
  • Typos
