Newspaper’s…store sign’s…blog post’s…everywere you look, you see typographical error’s, subject-verb disagreement’s, and multiple misuse’s of the apostrophe.

Your wundering if its a plot to drive you nut’s. **

What to do? Cease and desist reading hard or Web copy?

Or, for a measure of writerly catharsis, whip out a red pen at the coffee shop and have at the local rag. [Do resist intrusive rants and violent shredding, and you might consider an iced frappa-soya-chino instead of the lawsuit-inducing 16 oz. dark roast .]

Or just shrug and forge ahead, secure with the guiding light of Warriner’s English Grammar and Composition rules.


**Count the number of errors in the bold text and let me know in the comments how many you’ve detected. If you’re really intense, copy/paste the text in the comment box and paste in little dagger emojis next to the errors.

    Love that the comments are better than my content! I think I’ll make a blog from comments and claim them as mine! ;-]
