    Default Re: are these sentence correct

    a) Will they write the resume or only touch up for you?
    - touch IT up
    - I prefer a comma in this case between the clauses.
    Will they write the resume, or only touch it up for you?

    b) After exiting the highway you will connect to local road.(2 way trafic).
    - to "A local road" or "to THE local road"
    - the phrase in the parentheses ( ) is misplaced
    - spell out the number
    - hyphenate between "two" and "way"
    - I prefer a comma after the dependent clause in this case
    After exiting the highway, you will connect to the local road (two-way traffic).

    c) He call the school for a bomb scare/bomb treat.
    - CALLED (past tense of "to call")
    - WITH a bomb scare, not FOR
    - "threat" is spelled wrong
    He called the school with a bomb scare.
    He called the school with a bomb threat.


    d) I ommited reading the part of the email.
    - omitted is spelled wrong
    - "A part of the email" or "part of the email" or "THAT part of the email"
    - "omitted TO read" sounds better than "omitted reading"
    I omitted to read part of the eamail.

    d) I have missed out on the part of the email.

    - I HAVE missed out may or may not be right, depending on the meaning and context
    - missed OUT ON is probably not right. MISSED is probably the correct term here.
    I missed part of the email.
