Apostrophe Obsession

    Maybe you could add an adendum: read “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” to clarify. Apostrophe police unite!

  3. Many times when I see apostrophes misused, I try to ignore it. But when, as in this case, the error was apparently made by someone who should know better and who is also responsible for teaching others, well, my response would probably mirror yours. Hope it works!

One said “vidio;” My sister said, “what is that word supposed to be?” The teacher said “video, videotape.” My sister said, “that is misspelled.” The teacher became angry and said, “IT IS IN SPANISH.” Then my sister said, “that is not how you spell it in Spanish, either.”

    The next question is: has the sign been changed?
