- Italicize key terms.
- Prefixes – Most words with prefixes are written as one word, some exceptions require a hyphen.
- Never use the words “both” and “as well as” in the same sentence.
- Only use the word “would” in a sentence when you mean habitually; never use it when you mean “that”. Instead of it would appear, use it appears that…..
- Ensure that your pronouns agree: always use “who” for humans and “which” or “that” for nonhumans. When you can use “he” or “she,” then use “who.” When you can use “him” or “her,” then use “whom.”
