Arby’s has just been named the Riverdance chain by Yahoo! Music:
Riverdance, a theatrical show, is known for the lightning-fast feet of its Irish stepdancers.
I’m trying to figure out what this alleged sentence on Yahoo! Music is supposed to be telling us:
There’s a word missing. Or there’s one word too many.
What’s in a name? If it’s on Yahoo!, most likely a misspelling.
From Yahoo! omg!, this is supposed to be Mark Wahlberg:
and Nicki Minaj:
From Yahoo! Shine, this is allegedly Elizabeth Osborne:
On Yahoo! TV, this is the writer’s pathetic attempt at Kenan Thompson:
Yahoo! Sports offers up this attempt at Jimmie Johnson:
and Jeremy Lin:
And from Yahoo! Music, this is nearly Eminem:
Was the Yahoo! Music writer sitting a little too close to the monitor when writing this?
Unless you’re mispronouncing it as “istorical,” then the indefinite article before historical should be a, not an. The H is not silent (at least not in the U.S.), despite what you may read on Yahoo! Music:
Here’s the thing with typos: Readers may know you’ve made a mistake, but they don’t always know what it is. When you read this on Yahoo! Music, do you think there was more than one pop star and that the word manages should be manage?
Or do you think that the word manages is correct, and the word stars is the typo?
It’s pretty clear there’s a mistake here on Yahoo! News, but which word is right and which is wrong?
Was it a single storm or multiple storms that blew away?
Actually, in both cases, the verb is correct; its subject is not. It was one pop star (there is only one Miley Cyrus, thank heavens) and one storm.
With mistakes like this, it’s clear that no one’s proofreading at Yahoo! Music:
I think the question was supposed to be: Will Luke Bryan prevail? Or maybe it should be: With Luke, will Bryan prevail?
Lauren Alaina, the 19-year-old “American Idol” alum, also has a 19-year-old album. At least I think that’s what it says on Yahoo! Music:
Is there something about the subject matter that makes constructing a complete and correct sentence impossible for the writers at Yahoo! Music?
Why is there a missing word here?
And another missing word here?
Does writing about music impair one’s ability to spell?
Or does it make it difficult to use the correct indefinite article?
Is it the subject or the writer?
