Basic Grammar Rules

Grammar is the basic element of English language, or any language for that matter. Until and unless you are familiar with the rules of grammar, you can never excel in the language.

To make life a little easy for you, I’m listing the top 5 grammar rules here:

  1. A sentence always begins with a capital letter and ends with a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark.
  • The dog is barking.
  • Where is my red cap?
  1. All sentences must have a subject and a verb. An object may or may not be present.
  • Rani dances well.
  • She threw the garbage.
  1. The subject and verb in the sentence must agree in number i.e.

singular subject – singular verb

plural subject – plural verb

  • Garima goes to school.
  • They play football every evening.
  1. A singular verb is used when two singular subjects are connected by or, either/or and neither/nor.
  • Neither Ram nor Pooja was late.
  • Either Neha or Seema is coming tonight.
  1. An adjective generally comes before a noun in a sentence.
  • He is friends with that pretty girl.
  • Priya has a big dog.
