Common Errors in English Usage: Individual, Person

Adapted from Paul Brians‘ excellent book Common Errors in English Usage (to which he allows access at no charge under this hyperlink), here is a worksheet on the use of the nouns individual and person in declarative sentence. This is a full-page worksheet with only the short reading from Mr. Brians’ book: the actual work for this document is a free-write using both individual and person in sentences, and then assessing which word sounds better in prose.

And that is pretty much it.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
