I need to know if there are any grammatical errors in the following rewritten paragraph. Thank you.

However, dictionaries are often 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 use the first spelling, and if all of the dictionaries put the same spelling first, then the first spelling is bound to occur more often.

    It looks OK.

    The paragraph is fine, if the referent for the first "this" is clear from the previous material.

    I hope this helps a little more.
