Grammar Police.

Apart from pre-installed spellcheck in my blog programme, I have another human keeping a careful watch over my blog posts. She has an MA in English Literature and was also a popular lecturer in two famous colleges for ladies in Mumbai.

The latest policing that she did was when she saw my post “There Is A Rough Sense Of Justice In The World” she caught a typo. Instead of Sense, I had typed Sence and quite how the spellcheck missed that I do not know.

She sent a message to me before anyone else could read that and I was able to correct and update my post.

Thank you dear Grammar Police Woman.

(Psst, she is none other than my one and only sister Padmini who has stopped blogging for some inexplicable reason.)

    It’s clear that you give due respect to the ladies in your life!does Padmini also receive a proof reader’s fee?

    • Kylie, I don’t give due respect to the ladies in my life. The whole lot of them control my life. Proof Reader’s fee? She can take what she wants from me without ever having to ask for it and without having to say thanks.

    I loved it when she was doing those.

    As a rule, I’m not too bothered by people’s misspellings, typos, bad grammar etc, as long I can understand what they’re saying. But I do get irritated by the endless misuse of the apostrophe. Is the correct usage really so hard to grasp? It seem’s so….

    How lucky you are to have a grammar policewoman — an unfair advantage for correctness over those of us on our own. Also, an “out” — now whenever we err here, we can simply say, “…but we don’t have a double-checker!” 🙂

    Hi Rummy,

    It’s a blessing to have a grammar police. I have two in my life: one male and another female. I thank G-d for them every day :).
    So, why has your sister stopped blogging, did you find out?

    Cheers

  9. I’m (now quaking in my boots) unsure what your “grammar police-person” is going to think of the “new language” I’m creating where it isn’t the spoken word but rather symbols which one will have to read the message on what the symbols represent. This happened whilst I away on a personal retreat last week, and my art materials were severely lacking so I had to be rather inventive. I will post about this when I’ve summarised some of the notes.
