There are times when I just love the Internet. I found a post that includes everything you ever wanted to know about writing numbers. I know that’s a big claim and probably false, but I live for hyperbole.
Should you spell out simple fractions? Can you use figures for mixed fractions? Where does that apostrophe go when you wish to express decades using incomplete numerals, e.g., “We all wore shoulder pads in the ’80s.”
And by the way… that first sentence up there? Most major American publications (as well as most Canadian ones) capitalize Internet. Outside North America, internet is rarely capitalized.
How many grammatical errors are in this post? That was rhetorical.
