Sentences with semantic errors are good tools to enhance vocabulary development and improve meta linguistic awareness in sentences. In this product, students are given sentences with flaws in meaning. It is the student's task to recognize why a sentence does not make sense and correct it with words that make sense.
It has been found in studies that reading comprehension and meta linguistic skills are strongly linked. ( Achugar, Schleppegrell, and Oteiza, 20070).
