A most unappetizing sight, seen nearly every day


It's a shame when an error that Mr. Rewrite sees nearly every day spoils an everyday trip to the mall.

For the zillionth time: every day is an adverb; everyday is an adjective.

How often does Mr. Rewrite see the problem? Nearly every day (adv.). What did it spoil? An everyday (adj.) shopping trip.

Need more info? Try Paul Brians Common Errors in English Usage (again). Mr. Rewrite has an E! "True Hollywood Story" to watch before finalizing his syllabus.

Those who deal with Mr. Rewrite every day will see in this brief burst of blogging and shopping that he'll do anything to delay getting ready for school.
