The New York Times and the Smithsonian

Forgot to post these two last week…


Unfortunately, DVD’s isn’t a typo. The editors of The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage ignore the rules of punctuation and prefer to use an apostrophe in plural forms such as DVD’s. Sigh…


They must use that same guide at the Smithsonian American History Museum.

(Thanks, Andrew and Amber!)

The egregious apostrophe in DVD’s or CD’s is one of my pet hates. I don’t see how anyone can think it’s acceptable. Grrrr.
