More apostrophical crimes

All power to the South Wairarapa Adult Learning Association (SWALA) in Martinborough, for providing adult education courses. Good on them. But I sincerely hope the content of their literacy and writing courses is better than the content of this poster in the window of SWALA’s Jellicoe Street premises. The apostrophes in Beginner’s and CV’s shouldn’t be there at all, and why all the capital letters? Reading, writing, budgeting etc are generic rather than proper nouns and should only be capitalised if they start a new sentence.

Apostrophical Crimes V1 is here.
