This Yahoo! Celebrity writer and his/her editor have a problem with grammar — specifically, matching a verb to its subject:
I’m imagining a Yahoo! Style editor saying to this writer, “You need to put a hyphen in ‘New York born’ because it’s a compound adjective.” And the writer saying “OK, will do!” And this is what happened:
There’s that hyphen! It’s just in the wrong place. There’s no need to hyphenate New York (that’s just wrong); the hyphen belongs after New York.
Ashley Graham is quite the gal. She’s a vocal advocate for body positivity, which seems to be a social movement that’s the opposite of an anti-body. Anyhoo, a Yahoo! Style writer tells us she’s an untiring advocate, an advocate who never stops, not even to eat a bologna sandwich. (Not that I’m suggesting she eats bologna sandwiches. I don’t know. She might be a vegan.)
Her advocacy is continuous, meaning that it is uninterrupted. If she took a break once in a while, then she’d be acting continually.
