Copy Editing practice

I’d like you to start keeping an eye out for Copy Edit the World candidates. Your first 10 points worth of Copy Edit the World is due Feb. 21, but it helps to get started early on this assignment.

To help you get in practice, here are a couple of samples:

Typo3

Typo-1

typo

typo-2

The first person to correctly identify and correct the typo in either one of these items gets 2 points extra credit.

Please post your correction by using the comments link at the top of this blog post.

One typo per person, please. Let’s spread the wealth around.

  1. In the second article, I believe that the journalist Holly Hayes from the San Jose Mercury News meant “Capitola” woman, not “Capitula” woman!

  2. In the first article it says that Biden ‘supporters partnerships rights’, which is incorrect. The correct form of speech would be ‘supports partnership rights’
