Hi, again. Time for a tiny bit of information and another small problem solved – hopefully.
Our ability to make the language we speak fit our lives is boundless. Unfortunately, the language we write falls by the wayside and gets kicked about into a mighty tangle of knots. Who has the patience to tackle a ball of knots and sort it all out? Not many.
So we won’t take on the whole. We’ll unpick just one easy, promising-looking knot today.
Here it is:
There is no need EVER, EVER, EVER to use an apostrophe in order to form a word’s plural. The only exception to this rule is where there is a chance for confusion to arise.
So, please, let’s have no more of this silly apostrophe abuse.
The only one I’ll agree to is dotting your i’s. That’s all. Lesson over.
