  • 5 Types of Errors When Representing Numbers
    "Publications generally use one of two systems of referring to numbers: Spell out numbers to ten and use numerals for all larger numbers
    (with some exceptions such as informal usage of large round numbers such as “a thousand” or “a million”), or spell out to one hundred and use numerals otherwise (with the same exceptions). Beyond that, several subtle rules and conventions exist, often pertaining to use of punctuation and other symbols such as hyphens. This post presents five sentences that include types of errors pertaining to such use; each example is accompanied by a discussion and a revision."

  • Inflationary language - Humour
    " Comedian and entertainer Victor Borge used to do a bit where he'd muse about the application of economic inflation to language.

    See, we have hidden numbers in the words like "wonderful," "before," "create," "tenderly." All these numbers can be inflated and meet the economy, you know, by rising to the occcassion. I suggest we add one to each of these numbers to be prepared. For example "wonderful" would be "two-derful." Before would be Be-five. Create, cre-nine. Tenderly should be eleven-derly. A Lieutenant would be a Leiut-eleven-ant. A sentence like, "I ate a tenderloin with my fork" would be "I nine an elevenderloin with my five-k."
