A friend was recently shopping online for a bread machine when she came upon this description. There are so many issues with this information.
“More healthier” is not correct. It should just be “Healthier.” Healthier already says it is more healthy than not healthy.
“More evenly heated” does not need the “More” capitalized. There is a comma–not a period–after the incorrect “healthier,” so the next word (unless it is a proper noun) should not be capitalized.
“the bread tastes better and more fragrant” makes me wonder how you can taste “fragrant.” To be completely correct, this line should have said: “the bread tastes better, and is more fragrant.” Note what would be the Oxford comma as well after “better.”
The one thing going for them is that everything is at least spelled correctly.
Over the weekend I was watching the very end of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights while I was waiting for West Side Story to start. I don’t typically watch movie credits but happened to catch this as it was scrolling by:
And since I’m not involved in the movie industry, I even Googled that position to make sure it wasn’t a real thing. It isn’t.
I may have to start paying more attention to movie credits. They do have some very unusual titles there and apparently, they don’t think anyone reads them.
I’ve seen this error before and I think have even posted a previous Grammar Giggle with this same issue, but this was in my local Facebook Marketplace recently. It should be WROUGHT iron–which is one of two types of iron, the other being cast iron.
A Proof That reader sent this to me. They got it right in one place, wrong in two places, and we should take bets on how the one behind her is spelled. It really doesn’t take long to take a second look at something and will make you look better in the long run. Slow down and check spelling.
A lot of high schools are turning to social media to showcase their 2020 graduating class since they are foregoing the traditional graduation ceremony. I am super proud of my grandson and super disappointed that he doesn’t get the pomp and circumstance of graduation but was happy that his school put together a slideshow of all the seniors. They had special recognition for the Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and the male and female Athletes of the Year, EXCEPT while they spelled the hard ones right, they misspelled Athletes of the Year as “Atheletes of the Year.” I know that is how some people pronounce it, but it is not correct. Oh, and my smart and handsome grandson is the male ATHLETE of the Year!
A recent online news story caught my eye. Although “fentanyl” is spelled correctly in the first paragraph, the spelling in the quote from our Pinal County Sheriff is misspelled. I highly doubt Sheriff Lamb mispronounced it, so I’m thinking the news outlet misspelled it.
Another local news story put out in the universe too soon trying to beat everyone else. It shows the importance of slowing down just a teeny tiny bit to make sure your work product is correct. It looks to me like the first sentence was revised, but “during as” doesn’t make any sense there. Choose one or the other.
