manufacture/manufacturer: Common Errors in English Usage Entry for Sunday, October 4, 2015

When your company makes stuff, it manufactures it; but the company itself is a manufacturer. Both in speech and writing the final R is often omitted from the latter word.

This week we introduce the Common Errors in English Usage podcast with Paul Brians. In the first episode we talk about the passing of Yogi Berra and the phenomenon of Yogi-isms.

This is the tenth year 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!
