Before I went to bed last night I began thinking about a little grammar cartoon I saw in the “Grammar Girl” book. It had two characters, one was a banana, the other an aardvark.
The ardvark had a stand of bananas with a sign that read “Bananas $1.50”
The banana had a stand of coins that read “Banana’s $1.50”
Grammatically they are talking about possessives. And I began to think, what if we used grammar like an artist uses paint. I don’t believe an artist is the only one limited to manipulation and experimentation. What if we used grammar to hide secret codes, or special directions. Such as with a fantasy or mystery novel, sort of how The Davinci Code used words as encryption’s and riddles, or National Treasure…
fun fun, i think i’ll use that 🙂
