gaff/gaffe: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Sunday, February 8, 2015

“Gaffe” means “embarrassing mistake,” and should not be mixed up with “gaff”: a large hook.

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!
