OK, so how do you write about a designer showcase in Kips Bay and not be able to spell the town’s name correctly? Huh? I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that a Yahoo! Shine writer who is that careless would create more errors than a show house has rooms.
The writer may have been trying to be politically correct by using the combo his/her, but maybe gave up when she couldn’t figure out that the subjective case of the combined pronoun is he/she. So she used they. But not before using a noun (makeover) where a verb is called for (make over):
Here’s a recap of these errors: Recap doesn’t have a hyphen, there’s a repeated word, and there’s that Kip’s Bay again!
My advice to the writer: Don’t be afraid to proofread. You might find that you should have used snakeskin-like, and not the goofy snake skin-like:
Don’t be afraid to check the spelling of names; you might avoid misspelling names like Sherrill Canet:
Although many people misuse comprise, if you’re a professional writer, you should know better. And you should know that the compound adjective wood-and-plaster needs hyphens. But I’m impressed with the injection of humor here. Who doesn’t love an egg-shaped artist?
The use of comprised of is still wrong. And what’s wrong with using a real word, like wintry, rather than making up something that makes you look dumb?
