Chester French isn’t comprised by anything

I read a lot of what is written on Yahoo! Shine, so I really shouldn’t be surprised by this:


Good grief! I thought most literate people knew “the whole comprises the parts.” So, the musical group Chester French comprises two Harvard buddies. But many people would write “Chester French is comprised of  Harvard buddies.” But never, ever, ever, never have I read about a group comprised by anything.

    That’s one of my biggest pet peeves. Thanks for pointing this out. Now, if only yahoo writers would read this, they might learn something.
