I have been known to bite my tongue while reading social media. “Your” and “you’re” are used interchangeably. The same goes for “there,” “their” and “they’re.”
Homonyms! The bane of written English. Words that sound alike, but have different meanings.
It drives me nuts.
Mangled English is expected on Facebook and Twitter where grammarians are scarce. But CNN? Really? Isn’t someone supposed to proofread this stuff before it hits air?
If you close your eyes and concentrate you can probably hear screaming from the control room.
