Superfluous apostrophe...


Recommended Posts

Sorry to be pedantic, but my sub-editor's teeth can't help grinding when I see the intro:

"North Eastern France
Forum to discuss topics relating to north eastern France and it's region - Champagne-Ardenne, Lorraine, Alsace, Bourgogne and Franche-Comte"

I am sure it crept in alone and unbidden, but next time a moderator is tweaking that page, could he/she wave a magic wand and efface it, please?

Who's been reading Lynne Truss's book then?

As one who earns some of his pittance through sub-editing the English language I will confess that it - not to mention many other things found on the forum - annoys me too, but most of the time I just have to bite my tongue and keep quiet.

I wish moderators could edit things like that, but unfortunately we can't. We'll ask admin, but it may be best to wait until the new forum software.
