Both constructions are cumbersome and formal and draw attention to the issue of gender-neutral use and far from what the sentence says. Here`s a simple example to give you an idea of what a pronoun reference error looks like: how you rewrite the sentence depends on the style mode you use. The 8th edition of MlA and the 7th edition of the APA support the singular. On the other hand, the 17th edition Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) does not support the use of the singular in formal writings, unless the person in discussion prefers to use them. CMOS recommends rewriting the sentence so that the nounund and pronoun coincide. A pronoun must correspond in terms of sex and number to its recently mentioned predecessor, name or pronoun, to which it refers. There are several errors that arise from the fact that this rule is not respected. A frequent Pronoun chord error occurs when a writer uses a simple nominus as a student to represent students in general. Then, later, the writer can use them as a pronoun to replace students, because the author thinks of students in general. This is often the case when people try to avoid this structure and use complicated word choices like him, them or (where) men, because they are not singular pronouns neutral from the point of view of sex in English. The use of these variations is not preferred, and rewriting the sentence is a better option.
It should be clear to whom or what the pronoun represents. If you have a sentence in which the precursor of the pronos pair is unclear, your reader will probably be confused. Consider the following example: The person is singular; There is plural — error of agreement in standard, English Pronoun treated reference errors can also be problems for beginner scribes, because it is so easy to get in a hurry if you write and forget that you need to think about how clear your writing will be for your audience. With the advent of word processing software, there is no excuse for spelling errors in the edited prose. All word processing programs have spell controls that can be turned on or off. If they are activated, they basically work as follows: you compare the words you type with words in a repository with acceptable words, called dictionaries, and then warn in one way or another that a word that is not in the dictionary can be misspelled. Most spelling reviewers also mark repeated words. Many spelling controls can also be set so that some common typographical errors are automatically corrected, for example. B them for their. Words such as familiar names or phrases, which would not normally be found in a book style dictionary, are not included in the program dictionary.
