They don't rhyme, do they?

It doesn't rhyme: No words rhyme with silver, purple, month and orange. Try it.

Needs editing:
I just saw a TV network with LESS COMMERCIALS at the bottom of the screen. It's not less commercials; it's FEWER commercials. Take my word for it.

House it: A Fresno State player scored two touchdowns Friday night, and some guy on ESPN said that he housed it twice. Gag.

Cool stuff: Have you heard of a palindrome? It's a word that's spelled the same forward and backward (kayak, level and racecar are examples, although I think of race car as two words). ... Only four words in the English language end in 'dous': tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

Blogs: If you have an editing or writing blog (or if you have a particular entry you're proud of), let me hear about it. It doesn't even have to be a writing or editing blog. I just like good writing. Thanks.

  1. Wow, I didn't know that no word rhymes with my three favourite colours - silver, purple and orange. Thanks again for providing the link on LinkedIn Editors & Writers group. Loved Tank.
