I need to know if this paragraph has any grammatical errors in it.

Often, however, the dictionaries are wrong about this; in fact, by putting one word first, they are supporting a self-fulfilling prophecy. Consider the entry, "ax or axe", which appears with the two words, in that order, in five of my seven dictionaries. If we are all taught to be using the first spelling, and if all of them put the same spelling first, then the first spelling is bound to occur more often.
