An Oxford professor says we need to chill out about apostrophes. Here’s why he’s so wrong.
Simon Horobin, an English professor at Magdalen College, Oxford, asked the audience at the Telegraph Hay Festival: Do we really need the apostrophe?
He added that "sometimes we have to accept spellings change".
He added, "Spelling is not a reliable indication of intelligence."
And sure enough, grammar Nazis were immediately out in force.
