Copy Edit the World #3

I found this error in my Psychology textbook. The editors may have overlooked this caption–the word “respect” is misspelled.

This error was in the Encyclopedia of Junk Food and Fast Food–a published text. In this sentence, “Anderson” is possessive. It should read “Anderson’s.”

This assignment page has a wealth of errors. The number 1 should be written out and “PM” should be written p.m. There is also an error in the quote–“identifies” should be “identities.” After the word unexamined, the quotation mark is before the period punctuation mark. The quotation mark belongs after the period.
