Apostrophe Atrocity: On The Marquee at the Shore

Heavens forfend! An error on the marquee down at the shore.

The contraction stands for two words: Let us. Using the contraction form, it should read “Let’s…”

Oh well, the heat must have gone to someone’s head!

    Amazing!, My biggest complaint is that so many people put an apostrophe before the “s” in words that are plural, not possessive. Here is a marquee that needs an apostrophe and doesn’t get it. I’m sure it got used for a plural word somewhere.

    • HI Carol,
      Hang on. I’ve got a post coming on that very topic after I finish my parallel structure series. Hope it’s cooler when you get home. Thanks for visiting my blog. You are a faithful sister-in-law!

  2. Haha. Or they don’t own an apostrophe. 😉

I look forward to reading your comments!
