Grammar on the news??? Handicapped accused of canibalism.


On the (Swedish) news  today the reporter thought he said: “Handicapped people who need assistance while eating”

What he REALLY said: “Handicapped people who needs help eating their assistants”

(“Som behöver hjälp att äta av sina assistenter”)

The consequences of todays attitude towards grammar.

This was not even the first example of faulty grammar resulting in an entirely different meaning in the news today.

In short, we are not listening to the news or communicating anymore.

We are deciphering…..guessing.
