ATG Quirkies: Save the Apostrophe!

If there was ever a worthy cause this is it! And you can do your bit by supporting the Apostrophe Protection Society.  Started in 2001 by John Richards, now its Chairman, the APS aims to preserve “the correct use of this currently much abused punctuation mark in all forms of text written in the English language.”

Complete with an FAQ file, a message board and a page full of the most egregious examples of apostrophe abuse, the APS website is well worth a visit. To quote Mr. Richards “The little apostrophe deserves our protection. It is indeed a threatened species!”

(Thanks, as always, to John Riley of Gabriel Books for providing ATG Quirkies!)
