I heard it again last night on network news. A pilot had a near miss. Hello? Isn’t that a hit? Since when did “near miss” become the acceptable jargon for a close call?
In case you hadn’t noticed, the Grammar Cop is at its original home. Its previous site had a near miss when I installed updates. In other words, it was hit and demolished! I lost a lot of old articles, but never fear. We’ll soon have this site populated with your favorite grammar topics.
Be sure to send, post, or tweet me your questions. The Grammar Cop is always on duty.
