spot the error

From here:

Melbourne, Australia: Australia's second city may not have the glamour of Sydney, but its colonial heritage and multicultural dynamism more than compensates.

Typical SAT-style error.



  1. Subject-verb agreement? ("colonial heritage and multicultural dynamism" are plural)

  2. I wish I offered a prize for Most Frequent Commenter.

  3. I have no idea what the statistics are like, but I'm pretty sure I would be able to claim a prize for "Most Drive-By Comments" (where someone comes along and leaves a quick succession of comments sprayed across a series of posts).



All comments are subject to approval before they are published, so they will not appear immediately. Comments should be civil, relevant, and substantive. Anonymous comments are not allowed and will be unceremoniously deleted. For more on my comments policy, please see this entry on my other blog.

AND A NEW RULE (per this post): comments critical of Trump's lying must include criticism of Biden's lying on a one-for-one basis! Failure to be balanced means your comment will not be published.
