We should fix the chapter title…

  edgood  —  Grammar Tips
The chapter title reads: "We could of used the right helping verb."

Let's fix it: We could have used the right helping verb.

The words "could of" make no grammatical sense whatsoever. Sure, "could of" sounds like "could have," and you can get away with saying "could've" (sounds like "could of"). But if you write it that way, you've made a huge grammatical mistake.


Previous: Chapter 2 - "Could of"

Next: Chapter 3 - “Your” and “You’re”
