Filpinos tend to plurallize everything! We all know that the easiest rule of pluralization is by adding s at the end of the word. However, this is not always the case, stop adding s to words that are already plural in form and meaning, stuffs and evidences for instance. Saying anyways is a no-no as well!
2. Your and You’re
Always remember that your is a possessive adjective while you’re is a contraction of you and are. An example of the former is “Your bag looks expensive!” While "You’re spending so much for your bag,” is for the latter.
3. More + er or comparative form of adjective
More prettier! More beautifuler! More better! These are all wrong. Using more and +er form of adjective is just plain redundancy. You can say prettier, more beautiful and better.
