Drive your copywriter “crazy”

Welcome to The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks.

quotation marksWant to drive your favourite wordsmith certifiably insane? Just send them over to The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks. This online compendium compiles egregious quotation mark misuse, both online and in the real world, and then displays it for your amusement/enragement. Even the most liberal writer – one who uses “less” and “fewer” interchangeably, and prefers Dictionary.com to the OED – will twitch at a few of the worst offenders. Rage blackouts aside, it’s a pretty great reminder that not everyone is as obsessed with punctuation as we are, and sometimes intent is more important than grammar. Sometimes.

This week’s Frandoms are by Cristina¬†Markham, copywriter at JWT Toronto.
