Today the Grammar Cop presents the work of some spelling non-champions.
- A display including Trump-branded wine, champaign, water, and steaks is seen before presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at a campaign news conference event … in March 2016.
- Studies based on DNA sequences show that ratites continued to evolve into their modern counterparts as the continents seperated.
- At the new Time Out Market in the Eaton Centre, which had opened to great fanfair just before the pandemic, hours have been significantly reduced and restaurants are only opening at noon.
And the corrections:
- Apparently when you drink Champagne during a presidential campaign, it becomes “champaign.” 😂 [Note that it should be capitalized, as it’s named after the Champagne region in France.]
- Did you know that the continents never “seperated”? They did, however, separate.
- Fanfare, n. –
1. Music A loud flourish of brass instruments, especially trumpets.
