Hopefully, as in, "Hopefully, the rain will hold off," when one means, "I hope the rain holds off."Using "alumni" when only one person is referenced, e.g., "He's an alumni of our high school."
I hate when they use "media" as singular instead of plural.
I mangle singular and plural (and tenses) all the time. It's deliberate though.
And why is that? Care to expound?
People who complain about the word ain't. It's a valid word.Massadvj - you'd go nuts on my writing. I mangle singular and plural (and tenses) all the time. It's deliberate though.
Still, it doesn't hurt to show some writing discipline in discussion fora.
I have always been highly annoyed by the sentence: Barack Obama is President of the United States of America.
Memo to America: one does not make a noun plural by adding an apostrophe and an "s," e.g., "I have two dog's."Two dog's what? Two dog's leashes, collars, squeaky toys? (Or is that "toy's"?)
