I recently wrote an essay in English class and when I got it bcak I noticed that some of the words have agr or agr. over them. For example, most of them are over the words: their and they. I know it sounds confusikng, but if anyone can help, please do so. Thanks.
By using, "agr," your teacher is probably means "agreement." In this case, there are probably errors in pronoun/antecedent agreement. Since both "their" and "they" are plural, their antecedents must also be plural.
