  1. Great informative post I learned a lot. My question is even though a proofreader is hip to these outdated rules and myths, would she be at risk of being slapped on the wrist or losing a client because that client is still holding onto those old and erroneous rules? How could a proofreader handle that situation if it arises?

    1. You can suggest these changes, but at the end of the day, the client makes the final decision. 🙂

  2. So, are you saying that if I’m proofreading and come across one of the five myths, that I should correct it? Many people of a certain age still hold to these antiquities. Thanks!

    1. Yes, we recommend being on the lookout for these grammar myths! 🙂

  3. Ice cream, I love the way you teach, Caitlin! Thank you for the grammar update. The information on “aitch” or “haitch” made my ears twitch (in a good way)! Thanks again, Joni

  4. Thanks so much. Very helpful (but it won’t be easy to give up double spaces after periods!) :>)

  5. The double space thing makes me WANT TO SCREAM! So old fashioned and also irritating as a typesetter!

  6. I understand, language moves with time, and coinage gets new words in vocabulary.
