This thread is part of the Translator playground: a place for translators to have fun, to network, to learn, and to hone their translation or linguistic skills. See the announcement here.

Need a quick break from work? In this forum translators and language professionals can share quotes about translation, tongue twisters and word plays, translation challenges, etc.

All are welcome to participate and to add new items to this and the other areas of the Translator playground; have fun with it! If you need help or would like to propose an addition to the Translator playground, contact site staff through the online support system.

August 16 is International Apostrophe Day. Since I do not want to miss the celebration I'm sharing my selection of pictures from International apostrophe day: five advertising fails as a belated celebration

To honor this day The Guardian held an apostrophe haiku contest on Twitter. You can see the entries searching for the #apostropheday hashtag on Twitter. The winning entry and the runners-up have been announced here.

You can report misuses of the apostrophe below or to the Apostrophe Protection Society.

P.S. here is a poster by The Oatmeal explaining the uses of the apostrophe.
