Can I have a word? Grammar Man spells it out for vandals
by Rebecca Hughes
A superhero is saving Medway from crimes against spelling and
grammar - by correcting misspelt graffiti.
The mystery marker, who has dubbed himself Grammar Man, has been
correcting the spellings and punctuation of the scrawlings and
adding his own words of wisdom alongside.
Next to his scribblings he also sketches a superhero
with the logo of an exclamation mark emblazoned on his chest, a
cape flying in the wind and a mask to conceal his identity.
The latest sighting of his work was found on the
graffiti-covered floor of the bandstand in Victoria Gardens,
After correcting words like 'woz ere' and 'innit brav', the
mystery man left the message: "Terrible spelling and very poor use
of grammar. This is murder of the English Language. POW! Grammar
Man Strikes Again."
He also wrote next to drawings with speech bubbles that
contained grammatical errors.
Alongside the drawing of a girl that said "no wonder you hate me
when I look like this I love you though", he added "Punctuation
Again" and placed arrows next to another to illustrate where the
punctuation should have been.
Grammar Man's enthusiasm sometimes gets the better of him,
however, with a tendency to use capital letters throughout
sentences - as seen in his comments "Grammar Man Strikes
Again" and "Punctuation Again".
