    Re: common mistakes in english

    Using "alot" for "a lot".
    EX: Thanks *alot. => Thanks a lot. (the symbol * means ungrammatical)

    Using "it's" (it is) for "its" (possessive pronoun).
    EX: *It's tooth is loose. => Its tooth is loose.

    Confusing words: there, their, they're; except/accept; to, too, two

    Many times, it depends on your native language, and other times, it's universal.
