It’s really interesting as I’ve never used the forms of words, O’er and thro’. I’ve also never heard of apostrophe, the version: ‘words addressed to an absent person as if he were present or to a thing or idea as if it could appreciate them.’
This is day one of blogging from A to Z challenge and although A isn’t the first one I’ve written, (I’ve drafted 6 before this one) it will be the first one posted and I don’t want to completely put you off already. I want to learn something while doing this and while I’m sure I’m going to learn lots about myself too and how I write and, and, and… today I’ve learnt about apostrophe. I still need to find something out about when and how to use them so I can learn that too as I’m a bit pants at the use of ‘’s.
I nearly wrote about antifreeze. I have little to say about antifreeze, I like it in some places and dislike it elsewhere. I do like anniversaries.. nice anniversaries where I can celebrate with friends and family.
Then I saw ‘ and it had to be.
a pos trop he
‘sign (‘) used to show the omission of one of more letters, as in o’er for over, thro’ for through.’
ps here we go! only another 25 letters left…
I hope you liked A and you’re still with me for Z
