November 7th, 2011 by Steven Gardner

Sorry, posted the countdown clock post here on accident. It’s supposed to be on the Peninsular Thinking blog. We’ve got a different countdown clock on this site.

  1. Correct Your English Says:

    I think that you meant to say “by accident”, not “on accident”.

    Yes, you hear people speak this way often, but it is not correct.

    @Correct Your English,

    I was all ready to correct it, to show the error of my ways. Then I thought maybe I ought to check with another source. Lo and behold, to say it is “not correct” may be not correct.

    Consult with the Grammar Girl.
