Grammar – 27 Back to the Headline Quiz

Filed under: Language — Geeta Padmanabhan @ 9:47 pm

I’m not sure, but I just might pass up a story if the heading had a grammatical error. If you can’t take care of the heading, which is supposed to hook the reader, how good is what is written below? But then, the heading might have been composed by someone else…
Correct the errors in these headlines (Is there a heading editor?)
[1] More Chaos, Less movies at IFFI
[2] Bevan Bid’s Goodbye
[3] The Cannon, the site, got it’s 100,000th hit.
[4] Rally to focus disables problems
[5] First Lady’s Dress Same as Others!
[6] Tonights’ Simpsons Episode
[7] All Eyes on Kennedy in Court Abortion Debate
[8] Congress plans stir against prise rise
[9] New Mammal Mouse Found (tricky one, this!)
Minor fire in McDonald outlet
Do you want to go through the grammar lessons in the previous posts?

  1. 1. Fewer, perhaps?
    2. I hate that unnecessary apostophe
    3. I prefer “received”, but that’s not important – “got IT IS 100,000 hit”?
    4. “focus on disabled”?
    5. the same, shouldn’t it be?
    6. Tonight’s Simpsons’ episode
    7. during, maybe? I don’t know about this one.
    8. Spelling, ugh.
    9. Really? I’ve known about mice for a while now. They should have asked me.
    10. McDonalds’?? Not sure.
