ordinance/ordnance: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Thursday, April 30, 2015

A law is an ordinance, but a gun is a piece of ordnance.

This is the ten-year anniversary of the Common Errors in English Usage calendar. To celebrate, we are bringing back some of our favorite interesting, funny, but sometimes merely silly entries through the years before going on hiatus in 2016.

Enjoy the calendar? Buy the book!
