Apostrophic Is A Real Word?!



This one caught me off guard too!

Apostrophic! It sounds neat… like a catastrophe mixed with punctuation.

It's totally something you can say when someone screws up and puts an apostrophe in words that don't need it. Like if someone turned "font" into "fon't" (it was me, i'll admit it) – that is APOSTROPHIC!

    apostrophic could be when someone misuses an apostrophe–in a bad way. EXAMPLES: "That blanket belongs to it's owner." "The best game you we're never intended to play."

    Isn't that exactly what I said in the last two sentences?

    but "fon't" isn't a common apostrophe mistake. And it's not annoying apostrophe mistake. Apostrophic should be for annoying mistakes. "Fon't" is a totally cool apostrophe mistake. It's so freakin' cool, that it should be on a t-shirt. TOTALLY.

    Fon't

    I agree that "fon't" is a cool word.. but when you're trying to type "font" it's INCREDIBLY annoying, and APOSTROPHIC!

    So, in this vane I would like to formally introduce don't instead of doughnut. Shorter and to the point. Something like: Don't you dare forget my don'ts.

    Mmm… don'ts. Yummy!
