    To me, it is better to say Grammatical instead of Grammar Mistakes. It has to do whith my judge. Grammar is a noun and Grammatical is an adjective. Nevertheless, it is okay to say Grammar Mistakes

    Hello, Kowgirl.

    (1) I think that some people say that the "correct" term is:

    grammar mistakes.

    (a) These people say that "grammatical mistakes" is

    "wrong" because -- they say --

    How can a mistake be grammatical? That is, how can

    a mistake be correct?

    (i) The adjective "grammatical" means something like "following

    the correct rules of grammar."

    So these people ask: how can a mistake follow the rules of grammar?

    ***** Thank you *****

    P. S. Of course, if you say "grammatical mistakes," everyone knows

    what you mean, and I guess most native speakers don't care which

    word you use. Personally, I prefer "grammar."
