Let's learn when not to use apostrophes.


Please allow me to let it out. And by it, I mean my frustration regarding people who screw up the proper usage of apostrophes.

*screams*

THIS IS AN APOSTROPHIZATION BASTARDIZATION!!!!

*beats head hard and repeatedly against well-loved copy of A Writer's Reference*

Okay, I think I'm better now.

Thanks to MoJOE for this punctuational horror!

Greetings, Grammarphile.

I was just wondering if the split infinitive in your post title was intentional? Or perhaps you spend so much time surrounded by the horrors of grammar gone wrong that you've become infected?

Ha! Thanks for pointing this out. Even the best grammarphiles say screwy stuff sometimes!

I'm going to go flog myself with my battered copy of Eats, Shoots & Leaves now. ;) Thanks for the feedback!
