Business communication faculty (n=187) identified the top grammatical errors made by undergraduates as follows: subject-verb agreement, sentence fragments, subject-pronoun agreement, nonparallel series, and wrong word choice. Top punctuation errors included run-on sentences, comma splice, missing commas, and misuse of the possessive apostrophe. Errors were similar to those identified in studies 10 years ago. (SK)
