Lindsay and an Error in Parallelism

May 14, 2006

Lindsay Lohan was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, promoting her new movie, doing more push-ups, and said "Oh, #&%!" on the air.

This sentence is incorrect because it contains an error in parallelism. There are two gerund phrases ("promoting her new movie" and "doing more push-ups") and one verb phrase ("said 'Oh, #&%!' on the air".) To correct the sentence, change the verb phrase to a gerund phrase.
