Friday Follies #22 – 3 mistakes that make me go “Arghhh”!

Okay! The Grammar Cop is back from her holidays and has nailed three spelling infractions. Here they are for your reading pleasure!

  1.  “…due to compilations from ongoing health issues.” – HUFFINGTON POST  (ENTERTAINMENT). I guess that’s about right. Must’ve been a whole constellabrium of complications.
  2. “GENIOUS!” – Simplemost.com’s ad for an app. Full quote: “This app transforms your phone or tablet into an amazing coloring book. GENIOUS!” Not a genius speller, though.
  3. “An article speculated she was being tested for a vocal chord growth…” – CNN.COM (ENTERTAINMENT). The chord in question is indeed more entertaining than a real vocal cord would be… especially since the gaffe is repeated not once, but twice more in the same article.

I’m sorry, I have to go now – my vocal cords are sore from going “Arghhh”!

  1. I am so embarrassed to admit that I did NOT know how to spell vocal cords. Wow. Thankfully, it’s a term I probably haven’t written much, if ever. Thank you so much for helping me learn something new!!

      1. I’ve had present glasses for a month. The main problem is sun glare. I don’t want to give up the mountain view! You should see me wearing a visor and peering at the screen. It’s good for a laugh.
