Spelling

Language Abuse

Every writer has a list of particular annoyances when it comes to spelling and grammar mistakes. Below are two seen and heard in the Rochester, NY area this past week.

The first was offered by a female anchor during a live newscast: “has spreaded.”

The second was seen on a sign along the road at a driving range/miniature golf course: “birthday partys.”

Feel free to send me some that you’ve seen and/or heard.
