    Paragraphing problem- either too many or too few paragraphs. Single sentence paragraphs or huge monsters that fill the whole page and carry on.

    Missingspace- thespacebetweenwordsismissingwhichmakesithardtorea d

    Word form- using an adjective instead of an adverb, for example, or a noun instead of a verb: He's a quickly learner. (should be quick)

    Formatting- something to do with the text sizeetc.
