    Speaking of grammatical mishaps…I just heard Neal Conan on “Talk of the Nation” say, “…the results of the race is…”

    Great example, Sarah. Gives me a chance to be even MORE pedagogical.

    In Obama’s case, the pronoun (their) doesn’t agree with its antecedent (somebody). In Conan’s case, the verb (is) doesn’t agree with its subject (results). Conan shoulda used “are.”

    Uh oh! Here’s Obama making the same mistake again, in The New Yorker (9/21/09, page 49). In an article titled “Bench Press,” about the president’s legal approach, Jeffrey Toobin quotes the former law professor:

    “One of the roles of the courts is to protect people who don’t have a voice…. The vulnerable, the minority, the outcast, the person with the unpopular idea, the journalist who is shaking things up. That’s inherently the role of the court. And if somebody doesn’t appreciate that role, then I don’t think they are going to make a very good justice.”

    Although I come late to this discussion, I can’t resist reminding readers of this utterance from GWB during his first presidential campaign. Speaking about babies born out of wedlock, he leaned heavily on “the responsibility of a father for his or her child.”

    Anna’s example is great–it shows how anxiety over pronouns, and the desire to be sensitive to gender issues, leads to ridiculous “hypercorrection.”

    I remember reading elsewhere about a questionnaire at a private company that prohibited asking applicants whether “they are pregnant.” Last time I checked only women can attain that status. 🙂
