Doh

It was just pointed out to me over on Irish Election that the quote I attributed to Chris Gaskin on Balrog was in fact said by PS on Balrog in the piece about Debate and motions at the Sinn Fein Ard Feis???. Sorry about that. If anyone else sees any error in what I write feel free to point them out. I am quiet mistake prone.

You used the word 'mistake' as a transitive verb and modified it by using an adjective. Ergo, you should have used the hyphenated form of noun-adjective compound: mistake-prone."

And before you ask: no, I didn't mean "verb-adjective," since 'mistake' is nominally a noun and the hyphenated compound is the same.

(Okay, I did, but as luck would have it, my 'error' was correct.)

Now, if you like, I'll scan the rest of your Blog and inform you of any other errors. There is a small fee for this service.
