Dear Students (and all others with whom I communicate),
Please take these three "ifs" to heart:
1. If your written or spoken communications involve any of the errors exposed in this infographic, you are diminishing your credibility.
2. If you simply avoid these all-too-common mistakes, you will almost instantly be viewed as more believable and authoritative. [Corrected based on feedback from Dale. Boy, am I red-faced!]
3. If, on the other hand, you continue to commit these blunders, those who receive your messages may view you as an unreliable rube.
