Miss Language Person

posted Mon, 25 Oct 2004

Please please please. Could we get a few things straight?

1. Plurals are not formed with an apostrophe before the "s" -- even if you were not an English major. The rules are the same for everyone.

2. For mail sent within the company, it's "intra-company" mail, not "inter-company" mail. There is a difference, and you are not going to pacify me by saying "inter/intra" company. For someone who knows the difference between "inter" and "intra," you might as well run your fingernails down the chalkboard.

3. "Compose" and "comprise" are not synonyms. Look them up in the dictionary.
