Many, many years ago my assistant typed a letter to an over-reaching lawyer on "Evergreed Road" in Southfield, Michigan. I decided not to change the final "d" in the first word back to the correct "n."

I like it!

This motion for continuance includes my favorite typo of all time:

Jordy Singer

My old favorite is a Boulder, Colorado restaurant that advertised its five-star food, five-star service, and four-star ambulance.

Together with Deborah Gordon (Drexel) and Chris Coughlin (Wake Forest), I've just completed a symposium piece that discusses, among other things, the impact on student perceptions when legal writing professors have different titles from casebook faculty. In doing some research on how professional titles signal status, I came across the below sentences:

“Professional mores in K-12 educational systems in the United States strongly influence and more often mandate the students’ use of professional and/or courtesy titles when addressing educators. Many pedagogical instructors have taught educators that rifles help define the authoritative position and set a tone of respect.” Vickie Shamp Ellis & Jon Travis, Professional Titles in Higher Education: Do They Matter to Students?, 41 College Student J. 1168, ___ (2007) (dealing with forms of address).

Hmmmm . . . . it’s an idea, I guess . . .

Jacqui Lipton

That may just be the winner, Lisa! (Although I do like the idea of 4 star ambulance...)
