Mind the Grammar Gap

Noreen posted this on our Facebook wall:
My children spotted this sign outside a tube station in London last week and insisted I snap a photo. Am glad to know they have been listening to my grammar rants.
Well done, Noreen! The world would be a far better place if more moms (and mums) drummed basic grammar skills into their offspring. 

Where does this distinguished Cheeto vendor go wrong? He uses an apostrophe to form a plural word.

Quick rules:
  • To turn a singular word into a plural word, just add 's' or 'es' with no apostrophe. I love weddings. He and his friend always order turkey sandwiches.
  • 2 Flavors


  1. See the sign underneath? They "would recommend." Guess they're tentative about endorsing Oreo cookies.

  2. This sign has another problem. How much is 0.69p and 1.10p? Sixty-nine percent of one pence and one pound plus ten percent of one pence?

  3. Thanks for sharing excellent informations. Your site is so cool. I'm impressed by the details that you’ve on this web site. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. louis vuitton utah leather

  4. If this is in London, GB, then they also fail on flavor vs flavour

  5. Students are like this so much because they can learn more grammar from here. Do developed their English knowledge it will be so more useful for them.
