MISTAKE MONDAY for Feb. 19: Can YOU spot what’s wrong?
Can you spot what’s wrong in the image below? Please post your answer as a comment. I post these challenges to raise awareness of the importance of proofreading.
Believe it or not, this mistake appeared on the AP Stylebook website. I imagined that website would have a rigorous proofreading process. The moral of the story is that everyone makes mistakes. (I know I make plenty of them.)
I tweeted to @APStylebook about the problem. Although no one responded to me, I see that the mistake has been corrected.
Looking for the answer?
What caught my eye was the inconsistent initial capitalization of the glossary terms–Recession instead of recession.
