Grammar Rant 11/14/18

Woah, Nelly! That is one major spelling error!

It’s a simple error, but one that I see even the most learned of my colleagues make on a regular basis. And I’ve even seen it in books from reputable publishers, which makes me cringe and want to send a tersely worded email to their copy editors.

The correct word is “whoa.”

And a simple way to remember this is that “woah” rhymes with “Noah.”

Got it? Good.
