An article was recently published on Yahoo! Shine about the TV series “Friends.” The article contains lots of minor and major errors (no surprise), and if I can ever force myself to write about them, it will make for a lengthy TW post. I don’t have the time (or will) for that, so I’ll just serve up one example that can serve as a reminder to all about the importance of word choice:
The whole paragraph is kinda a jumbled mess, but that last part is the worst. It alleges that a character on “Friends,” Rachel, dumped her husband at the “alter,” which I take to be a misspelling of altar. Rachel did run out on her wedding — but that was before the actual wedding ceremony. She dumped her fiancé at the altar.
