Good English Gone Bad

In readiness for her workshop on presentation and punctuation on 1st June, our Chair Anne Funnell has an appeal.

If you have any examples of the following:
  • sentences wrongly constructed so that they are the opposite of what is intended, and are therefore very funny.
  • misplaced commas also giving the wrong meaning, eg. 'Eats, Shoots & Leaves'.
  • other malapropisms, not just intrusive apostrophes.
Please can you e-mail your examples to Anne by the end of April.

Alternatively, please can you also contact Anne, should you have any hard copies of examples, such as photos, that can be used in the interactive workshop. Thank you.
