Question:

What are six basic things to look for when editing an academic essay?

Answer:

The first step in editing any paper is to read it completely. A great way to do this is by reading aloud. This is also how to tell if the paper flows. Overall format is the first thing to look for in a paper. The citation page is attached to the format of the whole paper. I check to make sure the student cited all the sources correctly according the format the paper is meant to portray. Syntax is another basic thing to look for in papers. The fourth and fifth things to look for are vocabulary and capitalization. Simple mistakes like not capitalizing a movement or misspelling a name are common. The final thing is proper punctuation. The six basic things are overall format, citations, syntax, capitalization, punctuation, and vocabulary. Advanced editing looks at the thesis, tone, style, transitions, and parallelism.

Answer:

They're is a contraction of "they are" or "they were". Their expresses ownership as in something belongs to someone. There refers to a place that is not here. The three words sound the same because they are homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. Example: not and knot Example: new and knew

Question:

What is the difference between a transitive verb and an intransitive verb?

Answer:

A transitive verb involves a direct object, which means the action of the verb is done to someone or something. An intransitive verb does not contain a direct object. An intransitive verb does have a subject. Transitive Example: Sophie fed the dog. Intransitive Example: Sophie fell.
