Thread Name: For pedants only
Subject: RE: For pedants only
It means that an apostrophically challenged smallholder sells both logs and eggs.

Or he (or she?) could be a woodcarver specialising in ovals.

It doubt it, however!

How about punishing those who start a sentence with "But", instead of using "however"?

I also wish it were possible to punish misuse or omission of the subjunctive.

But then, I am only an erratic pedant!

Or is the latter an oxymoron?
