Mini-Post: Grammar Nazi
I am indignant to learn that apparently gauge and gage are interchangeable??
Good job, WordPress, for marking “gage” as spelled wrong. <cookie>
This came about while transcribing some of the notes of my predecessor. He has “gage” all over this spreadsheet… instead of “gauge.” And it is driving me crazy.
I am making a point to replace it everywhere I see it.
I am still confused that “gage” actually seems to be correct somehow? Is this one of those matters of lazy people getting their way? Is it really that difficult to put that “U” in “gauge”? It is a tough one, I am sure… :/
What are you thoughts on gage and gauge?
What about other words that should not be words?
Or what about words people use lazily in place of the correct word? I am looking at you, oh hated “prolly.” <shudder>
Have you ever really wanted to correct someone on their spelling and/or grammar?
Please share your thoughts!
