Complaint: Misdemeanor misuse of a homophone – “principle” when “principal” was called for; transfer of error on to a vinyl banner; mounting banner in a window with significant vehicular and pedestrian exposure.
Defendant: City Connections Realty, Inc.
Report: Officer noticed transgression on Park Ave. while passing another former restaurant that he had meant to go to. Apparently he waited too long. Before a ticket was issued, he was briefly amused by the idea of a broker with principles.
Can I be the first to publically appeal to the Grammer Cop to pass a by-law to determine cruel and unusual punishments for the inappropriate use of the exclamation mark? Or, as offenders would have it, the exclamation mark!!!!!!!!!!. In this case, I find it hard to get as excited as the sign author about there being a kitchen, albeit a high end one, in the basement.
So, is that how they spell “grammar” in Ireland?
What, W-R-O-N-G? Are typos simply a manslaughter or diminished responsibility charge next to the murder cases taken on by Grammar Cop?
I’m inclined to fine, so I can get my hands on some of those over-valued Euro.
Is that how you spell “publicly” in Ireland?
Actually publically is synonym of publicly.
I see. I just hadn’t seen that spelling before, or at least I don’t remember.
Test. Don’t ask.
you know i have to ask!
A few things:
1) Is it not an infraction to mix the use “SF” with “S.F.?” This may be a stylistic offense rather than grammatical. Please advise.
2) Shouldn’t “high end” be hyphenated? Shouldn’t it also be used in an explicable context?
3)Isn’t “Euros” the plural of Euro?
