This Week: Apostrophe talk on the podcast (part 1) + visually impaired + Paul Brians’ latest blog post

visually impaired 
 Many people mistakenly suppose that “visually impaired” is a more polite term than “blind.” But the distinction between these two is simpler: a person without eyesight is blind; a person with vision problems stopping short of total or legal blindness is visually impaired.


On the podcast this week, we give some background on the apostrophe and talk about its use.

Paul Brians’ latest blog post takes measure of how we use language to describe large areas.
