Notes on linguistics and cognition
Lucky folks who are born in the summer are born to rich families.
Yep, not easy though.
I read it about ten times, then had to look at the article for context. One minute later...
jp 吉平, yep, that was my experience.
Too bad there's a glaring mistake in the lead: "...don't worry about whether you’re birthday is in the summer or winter."
Angelina, nice catch. I think your and you're should be condensed into simply yer. Same with there, they're, and their into ther. Life (and copy editing) would be much easier, hehe.
Glad someone enjoyed that headline. It was a little bit contrived, but deliberately so. Pity I had a major fail on your/you're, I was originally going to say "you are born" but it was a bit repetitious and I fluffed teh edit ;-)I guess I need to whip my proofreader into shape, eh?
David, happy to pass along your/you're article. Personally, I advocate moving to "yer" for both, hehe.
But wouldn't it be "Summer-born"?
dantheman, yes, that would have helped a lot.
