Don’t use no double negatives. 7. Each pronoun agrees with their antecedent. 8. Just between you and I, case is important. 9. Join clauses good, like a conjunction should. 10. Don’t use commas, that aren’t necessary. 11. Its important to use apostrophe’s right. 12. It’s better not to unnecessarily split an infinitive. 13. Never leave a transitive verb just lay there without an object. 14. Only Proper Nouns should be capitalized. also a sentence should 15. begin with a capital and end with a period 16. Use hyphens in compound-words, not just in any two-word phrase. 17. In letters compositions reports and things like that we use commas 18. to keep a string of items apart. 19.
