Letter to the Editor for 9/28/09

Reader finds little to compliment in grammar mistakes

I was just about to write a letter to compliment a reporter on his correct use of the word “complement” in his “Enterprise Zone” article in The Gazette of Sept. 16, when I read his article about Grayson County school construction in the Sept. 18 edtion.

In this article, he uses the word “complement” incorrectly. I then realized that he must use the word “complement” for both the word “complement” and the word “compliment.”

This differs from all other Twin County journalists who tend to use the word “compliment” for both. You all should have “went” to school the day they taught about homonyms.
