The Rogue’s Apostrophe

Apostrophes are becoming a bit of a hot topic at the moment. In the UK, the Birmingham City Council banned their use on road signs whilst the mid-Devon County Council was forced to do a U-turn after a similar proposal was met with popular anger. In both cases the reason behind the proposal was to avoid “confusion” which is patently absurd seeing as the proper use of apostrophes provides clarity.

It is becoming such an emotional topic that websites have been created to campaign against the increasing use of the “Rogue Apostrophe.” This is the term coined for those seemingly random occurrences that are pervading everyday text, advertising and yes, road signs.

However, we would like to bring your attention to a far more relevant issue. A recent BBC article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22403731) highlighted the effect of bad grammar within online dating circles. A study of 500,000 first contacts concluded that textspeak was a CWOT when it came to impressing the other half. On the other hand, those that used their apostrophes correctly witnessed over a 35% increase in positive responses.

So, if you want to improve someone’s grammar, print off the article from the BBC and leave it lying around in an obvious place. Then download the App (link below), sit back and watch nature take its course.
