Swedes Speaking English in Singapore

Nic, who submitted this photo from Singapore, wonders if the apostrophe catastrophe/improper pluralization is forgivable since it was committed by a non-native English speaker.


Childrens is not a word in any language, so I'm not giving them a pass on this one.

Thanks, Nic!

It's a mistake, yes... but it's at least slightly more intelligent of a mistake than usual. At least this person knows the rules of putting the apostrophe on the other side of the S when the word is plural. I consider myself pretty good with grammar mostly, but I could have easily slipped up and written the same.
