Can you spot the spelling and grammar errors?
As I walked into the shopping centre I looked up and saw the Centre Management sign. Yes another spelling error.
The word centre was now spelt correctly on the other side of the sign. How do graphic designers and printers get one side of a sign correct on one side and don't have the spelling the same on both sides? To me that doesn't make sense.
You may also notice the spelling carparks, which is a secondary spelling. The preferred spelling in Australia is car parks.
Whilst I tend to consider these spelling issues minor, I know for me, seeing spelling errors like this around me all the time can make it hard to remember the correct spelling and grammar. Often the incorrect usage of the apostrophe makes me doubt that I know the correct usage. We learn through usage and example and I often feel such poor examples cannot be helping those who are learning our language, such as the young and for those with English as a second language.
Can you spot the errors in the above signs?
The best spelling for Australians.
