Surface revision

  1. 1. Surface Revision: Questions toAsk
  2. 2. Word Choice • Is the spelling correct? • Are the correct forms of words being used? Consider contractions (its/its, were/were, etc.) and homonyms (there/their/theyre, our/hour, one/won, etc.). • Are any words repeated too many times? • Is there variety in the transitions? Is the correct transition being used? For example, however means on the contrary; therefore means in addition too. • Is the language clear?
  3. 3. Verb Tense • Does every sentence have subject/verb agreement? • Are the verb tenses consistent throughout the essay? • Is the correct verb being used? Is there variety in the verbs?
  4. 4. Punctuation • Are all the sentences complete with subject and verb? • Are there comma splices? Run-on sentences? • Is the punctuation surrounding the quotation marks correct? • Is the use of any semicolons or colons correct?
