  4. d changing the vocabulary to make it sound- redoing and thus are uncomfortable with the idea of revision and even the word revision.
  5. e pronoun/antecedent agreement (number) = pronouns must agree in number with their antecedents = "they" cannot refer back to a singular antecedent like "a person." We tend to do this because there is no singular pronoun that can refer to a gender-nonspecific noun like "the person." To fix: pluralize the antecedent so that "they works" or, if possible, specify the antecedent such that another pronoun works, as in "the woman...she."

  3. INEXPERIENCED WRITERS' REVISION STRATEGIES TO AVOID"Use big words" and "Use different words for the same meaning (use thesaurus)" [Sommers' research shows that this is the main revision strategy of inexperienced writers.]
    "Turn in first drafft." [Hjortshoj argues that most student papers are actually first drafts.
    "Check just for grammatical and spelling mistakes" [A big problem with this revision strategy is that, if you routinely make mistakes, you probably won't notice that you have done so. Also, such "editing" is not really the "reseeing" that Hjortshoj and Sommers say is expected in college level or mature writing.]
