amNY Watch Bonus: Mis’placed Apos’trophe’s, too’

It’s become abundantly clear that despite the fact that I point out blatant errors in its publication every week, nobody at am New York reads this site. Otherwise, they may have gone back to their AP Style Book for a lesson on apostrophe usage.

By the way, this was on the same page as the error-laden recipe that I mentioned earlier today. Then again, the section is called “Eating Well,” not “Writing Well.”

    I know this will come as a shock to you, as I am sure I am the most intelligent person you know (cough, sniff), but…

    I admit, I don’t think I would have written that correctly, either. When the word is plural and you are making it posessive, my mind gets all fuzzy and stops working.

    On the other hand…

    I probably would have just changed the phrasing to “The Chef at the Four Seasons Tells us Which Season is Her Favorite” because I at least realize my gammatical shortcomings.

  2. And lets not forget favourite is always spelled wrong.
