Grocer's apostrophes

Post by DrTeeth » Fri May 26, 2017 7:42 pm

Hi,

Please, please, please remove all those apostrophes in the Editor download page in the "We guarantee download..." box.

They are just as wrong on US English as in UK English. Please see https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/greengro ... apostrophe and http://www.apostrophe.org.uk/

To be used they have to show possession or indicate a missed letter and in the afore-mentioned box neither case applies.

Sorry, but it really bothers me ;-).

Cheers,

DrTeeth

Hooray for DrTeeth! English needs more pedants like us to defend it. :wink: The grocer's apostrophe drives me nuts, too. :D
