Writing Hint #5 Use apostrophes correctly
My daughters an English teacher in one of our state high school’s.
She emphatically claim’s to be an “apostrophe nazi.”
She goes around the staff room, office and staff office’s correcting the misuse of apostrophe’s in other people’s poster’s, notices and anything pinned up on the notice boards.
I’m thinking of never going shopping with her again – just in case she decides to go around correcting poster’s and advertising hoardings. That would be most embarrassing.
I recently came across this following hint regarding the use of apostrophes:
Use the possessive apostrophe in it’s place and omit it when its not needed.
One cant be too careful.
I hope my daughter never read’s this or she might find a few mistakes. At least she cant access this blog in order to correct it’s mistakes.
Oh dear – Ive just realised that she could leave comments about this post. Ooops.
I invite you to comment on the above text.
Can you find all the errors?
I think I have made 14 errors. But… I could be wrong!
