Preventing the sun is not a good idea, even if you could do that. The Yahoo! Style writer seems to think that Lady Gaga is somehow preventing the sun with sunglasses as big as what we would call a windshield:
I’ll bet anyone dollars to donuts that the editors for the Yahoo! front page have no idea what an antecedent is and why a pronoun must agree with it:
An antecedent is the noun that a pronoun refers to. The pronoun must agree with its antecedent, meaning that they both must be the same number (singular or plural). A plural noun (like oh, say, maybe fights) requires a plural pronoun (like them).
If you, like me, thought that this was the last year for the TV show “Mad Men,” we’d both be right. If you, like me, thought it was also the series’ seventh year on TV, we’d both be right. If you, like me, think the writer for Yahoo! Style doesn’t know the difference between an episode and a TV season, we’d be right again. And the writer would be wrong:
Or maybe she’s wrong, but in a different way. Maybe she meant “the seven-episode season” and she doesn’t know the difference between a series and a season.
