Check out this headline from Bleacher Report. Epic grammar fail, eh?
Oy! Thanks for sending this in, Jason. It's a great example of how homophones are so often confused.
Where does Bleacher Report go wrong? Its headline confuses whose with who's.
- Whose is a possessive pronoun. Whose jacket are you wearing?
- An apostrophe doesn't always show possession. Note that none of the possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, its, our, their, whose) are spelled with an apostrophe.
- Who's is a contraction of who is (or, less frequently, who has). The apostrophe takes the place of the letter 'i'. Who's wearing your jacket?
