It looks like there’ll be lots of material for Terribly Write in the new Yahoo! Style. Here’s a random snippet that offers lessons in writing for all of us:
Lesson 1: If you’re writing about fashion, learn to spell the names of designers and fashion labels, like Emporio Armani. Misspelling something so basic marks you as careless — or worse.
Lesson 2: Suffice it to say, make sure you get common idioms right.
Lesson 3: Pairing misspellings with homophonic errors makes you look uneducated. Know the difference between pare (which means to trim) and pair (which doesn’t).
Lesson 4: If you mean socks with white laces, then write “white-laced socks.” If you mean socks with white lace, don’t.
