Double Negatives Worksheets
Negative words like not and no are an important part of any language. Using more than one negative word in a phrase or clause is generally considered bad grammar, however. The reason for this is that double negatives are confusing for readers and listeners. There is usually a simpler way to say or write it without using so much negation. Below are worksheets to help students recognize and avoid using double negatives. If you like these resources, visit my page on double negatives for an additional PowerPoint
and video lesson on double negatives.
