Fun stuff

Grammar school

One of the advantages of being on vacation is that I get a chance to catch up on a lot of stuff. One thing I ran across was this cool blog on PilotOnline about grammar. Lots of good stuff in there for the grammar-challenged among us. (You know who you are :) )

And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then check out this one. Lots of cool old photos from the newspaper’s archives, some of which have never been published.

  1. My personal campaign involves getting the managers of stores to change the signs in their express check-out lanes. It’s “15 items or fewer”, not “15 items or less”. I’m not one to correct individuals, but I’ll work on the environment.

    I actually got signs changed in one locally-based store. I’m still working on Home Depot and Target. ;)

  2. A grammatical error that is proliferating like kudzu is the one where a sentence has a subject noun that is modified by a prepositional phrase tfollowed by a verb that does not agree with the subject but instead agrees with the object of the preposition.
    Examples:
    A review of the movie and score are on page eleven.
    Regular purchase of blue-chip stocks enhance one’s portfolio.
