[Photograph of sign in Shawlands]THERE ARE A GREAT MANY SIGNS CONTAINING SPELLING ERRORS.

My favourite this week is from Shawlands. [Please click on the image to enlarge]

There is a lot of information on this sign, the word that caught my eye was “FACIA’S”

Clearly they meant “FASCIA”. It is a pity that no-one thought to use a spellchecker feature or a proof-reader.

The possessive apostrophe is also an error, it is clear that they intended the plural. The plural of FASCIA is not FASCIAS, but FASCIAE.

Now that would have put the cat amongst the pigeons!
