    I wish I would have had this to post in my classroom when I was teaching high school. It’s a great visual reminder for beginning or experienced writers. 🙂

    I would use “that” and not “which” in the example given. There’s more of a mix-up between “who” and “that” actually. “That introduces what is called an essential clause. Essential clauses add information that is vital to the point of the sentence.” “Which introduces a nonessential clause, which adds supplementary information.” So that mistake should cover “who” vs. “that” or “which”.

    It’s “ellipsis” not “ellipse” (but the plural of “ellipses” is correctly spelled).

    And a semicolon is “most commonly used to link (in a single sentence) two independent clauses that are closely related in thought”. That’s the best description of its use I found.

    Sorry to be so picky, but there’s no point in posting something about common mistakes that introduces more mistakes. 😉
