Things translators always say: Could you please provide the context? 

 

Be warned: whenever you ask a translator about the meaning of a word they will inevitably say “it depends on the context.”

The things-translators-always-say series is inspired by the group on Facebook Things Translators Never Say created by Erik Hansson. This series aims at depicting phrases and things translators openly say.

Avoid encounters with people who tend to misplace the apostrophe (click on the image to enlarge it)

This cartoon is inspired by the haiku competition organized by The Guardian last week to celebrate International Apostrophe Day  (#apostropheday on Twitter).

One of the speech bubbles is very similar to the the winning haiku  by @ApostropheLaw:  “I’ve run out of food./I’m going to eat the dogs./What apostrophe?”

If you find the misuse of the apostrophe irritating you can report the instances you encounter to the Apostrophe Protection Society.
