IM IN UR GRAMER Dec 11, 2007
From the Desk of: Sarah Young
I am the editorial assistant. I like correcting grammar and punctuation. I’m a liberal, but I can be a linguistic conservative. That means I can blame the state of education in this country, then turn around and tell you that it’s “they’re,” not “there.” When I first got this blog, I wanted to start snapping photos of grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes that I saw around town. I particularly wanted to document the punctuationally incorrect (not to mention just plain incorrect) sign on US-1 that proclaims SOUTH DAYTONA SAYS “NO TO DRUGS.” However, leave it to the Internet to point out that you’re not as
unique original as you thought (yeah, even you with the fetish for corpses wearing Hawaiian shirts). It turns out there are multiple blogs devoted not only to photographing grammar and punctuation mistakes in general, but even specific types of errors. Apostrophe Abuse documents the ubiquitous misuse of the apostrophe. Literally, A Web Log is all about the incorrect use of the word “literally.” And you can sleep at night, because the mysterious beast that is the unnecessary quotation mark has been wrangled.
