Grammar, we love you


Just a very short note in case you are interested in the ways of internet linkage. I was looking on the BBC website just now (if the link is still there, it’s http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8597399.stm), and, also if it’s still there, you may see the link in the bottom rhs of the page.

It reads:

Times Online Lonmin shares take tumble as problem child furnace is shut – 8 hrs ago

Disappointingly, the grammar changes as you go to the link:

Lonmin shares take tumble as ‘problem child’ furnace is shut

All of which is a bit of a shame. Those of us with problem children might not ever want to put them in a furnace, but every now and again it might be nice to use as a threat.
