Share Common Mistakes In English That People Make

Hello everybody. This is a thread about Standard British English (SBE). A lot will be revealed here. We will also use this thread to talk about Americanism (very common these days). Dissenting views are also allowed. Welcome all.

Let's talk about two words today.

EVIDENCES;

SLANGS.

Please note:

The word EVIDENCE has no plural form. It could however be plural when it relates to scientific facts/objects. BUT never plural when it relates to information used in court.

Correct version: Evidence are legion of unjust arrest and brutalisation of people.

Also, the word SLANG has no plural form.

Incorrect: Such slangs are common among students.

Correct version: Such slang is common among students.
