Beware of rogue apostrophe’s
Having spent a good bit of the past day travelling on planes, trains and automobiles, I cam across several notices which had experienced serious apostrophe attacks. Here are a few I saw.
Stand back from the platform: beware of train’s
Special offer: pastry’s and cake’s
South carriageway closed tonight due to roadwork’s
Turn on car light’s
I have argued previously that it is time to retire the apostrophe. It has ceased to be useful, it’s just annoying now.
