BizWritingTip wants to make a conscious effort this year to clean up the grammar on the signs we see around us. Help us out. Whenever you see an error on a sign or in an article or newspaper advertisement, send us a photo of it. We would also like to know where you saw the problem.
We’ll post the most interesting signs under the “sign errors” category above. There is no prize — just the knowledge you’re making a small difference in the improvement of the English language.
By pointing out the errors, hopefully, we will get them fixed. Additionally, we will put a stop to readers thinking that the error is correct just because they saw it in print.
Here’s an example of what we are looking for.
This is a sign I saw in an office building in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
There are three grammar errors. Can you spot them?
Please send a photo of errors you spot on signs, packaging, and in newspapers or magazines.
