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.
