Language Police: Spot the Error

jedleyJedley on 05/01/2006

LanguagePoliceSpottheError Photo Ok, everyone screws up they're possessive's now and then.
(catch those?) But their are other kinds of errors (another one!) that are more insidious, ones we're not even aware we're making.
When the Shrub says 'nucular' instead of nuclear, for example, he actually believes he's correct, which makes it likely he'll continue doing it, thereby helping to perpetuate the error.
I've booby-trapped ten sentences with common errors of grammar, usage or spelling that a lot of folks make. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: identify them.
Good luck.
