It’s wrong of me to pick on a comment posted in haste on a web site without a preview feature and critique the use of apostrophes isn’t it?
Yes it is. Of course it is. So I’ll let you critique them yourself:
Was astounded at how the country is divided into very tight areas where Sikhs, Bengali’s, Kashmiri Muslims, Pakistani Muslims and Hindu’s live. (The TimesOnline)
Ach, I can’t resist. There seems to be an awkwardness about pluralising words that end in a vowel. What do you think? And every day I see naked posessives stripped of their apostrophes, following the german usage.
Do you know something? I find this change in the language exciting.
