My landlords alerted me to one of the most beautifully ironic grammar errors I’ve seen in the region. I don’t have a picture, but you can check it out here.
Here is an artist’s rendition:
What’s up at the library (and it’s branches)
Learn English at the library
English classes are being offered at the library.
Classes are free and registration is not required.
There is no waiting list; anyone who wants to improve his or her language is welcome.
Dennis said it best:
Kate, which is worse: that this headline adorns a story about the public library or about English classes?
I have no idea.
The strangest part of all is that the paragraph below is constructed beautifully (grammatically, at least). The writer even takes the step to write out “his or her” instead of the “their” that I detest so much!
Still, how can this happen?!
Thanks, Dennis and Rona.
