gig/jig: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Sunday, June 14, 2015

“The jig is up” is an old slang expression meaning “the game is over—we’re caught.” A musician’s job is a gig.

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!
