  • Does every singular countable noun have an article or determiner?
  • Do any sentences begin with a FANBOYS coordinating conjunction?
  • Does every sentence begin with a capital letter? Is ‘I’ alway capitalized)?
  • Is the document spell-checked?
  • Does every sentence have a subject and a verb?  Do they agree?
  • Are adjectives and adverbs as close as possible to the words they modify?
  • Do ‘a, b, c’ sentences use parallel structure?  (e.g.  reading, writing, and to speak)
