Grammar Giggle – Seperate

This was on the packaging of a recent purchase. I even did a Google search to make sure it wasn’t a new word, but the definition I found said: “Separate is often misspelled as seperate, a word that has no meaning and is simply a misspelling.”

Grammar Giggle – Who New?

My daughter sent this to me from a CVS ad. I think they may be trying for a play on words, but I don’t think that works either. At least I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt that someone there didn’t just make a really dumb mistake.

Grammar Giggle – Assistants?

This was in a recent local bar publication. You can see that the headline is wrong because it is right in the first paragraph. This just shows the importance of reading headings as well as the language of your document.

Grammar Giggle – Extremely Last Minute

A one-sentence email that is this full of errors really concerns me. Merriam-Webster defines “last minute” as “the moment just before some climactic, decisive, or disastrous event.” I’m not sure how you could have an “extremely last minute” if last minute means “the moment just before.” Not even counting the other spelling errors in this email. Take time to slow down and actually read what you’re putting out there for all the world to see.
