I have had an atstonishing thought and have decided to share it here before I forget. You know how people get good and grumpy about the grocer's apostrophe, i.e the apostophe that belongs to the grocer... well, I feel that this grumpiness is unfounded.
This is how the grocer's apostrophe works:-
Me to Grocer: Good Sir, how much are your finest cauliflowers?
Grocer [originally from South East London]: Cauliflower IS £5.50 each, luv, d'ya wanna feel?
If we think about this grocer's linguistic tendencies, then signage saying 'Cauliflower's £5.50' etc, would be quite correct. Wouldn't it?
I have no idea how much cauliflowers cost, btw, or whether they need to be felt. AND, perhaps I ought to keep my thoughts to myself in future...?
