Thtupid-Word Thursday: Cloths / Clothes

WRONG: “I Have my own business, Desiging hats and dog cloths.”  Um, in so many ways, wrong, even setting aside what society has forgotten:  that it is reasonably Weird for Dogs to wear stuff.

Here it is – visual and easy:

Clothes:

Cloths:

Really, which would YOU want to wear???

If you Google images for cloths, you will find, mostly clothes (a couple of loin cloths, so don’t google it while the kiddies are around!).  Here’s a YouTube video offering to “stretch UR $” by turning “WINTER kids cloths into SUMMER cloths” – sounds easy to me, though perhaps you’d want to dye them a lighter, pastellier shade.  And this is a reasonably moronic thread discussing “Parents and their kids cloths.”  Argh.

Kind of along the same lines, and misused in the same way, are Breath and Breathe.

Breath:

Breathe:

It’s okay, I tell myself.  Just take a deep breathe.  Don’t forget to breath, I say… don’t forget.

  2. Yay! I'm not the only grammar lady around!

    I feel exactly the same way. And don't even get me started on misplaced apostrophes! (I even tried to be cute and misplace one there, but I just couldn't bring myself to submit it like that!)

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
