UGH! Do you want to know what has bugged me the most about this election? All (and I mean, ALL) of the broadcasters saying "an historic event" or "an historic election."
Did they skip their grammar lessons at broadcasters school?? It just keeps bugging me. I know that we use "an" before "honest" because the "h" in honest is not pronounced. That makes sense because then it sounds like a vowel starts the word. But it is NOT proper to say "an historic."
Katie, Barbara, Charlie, Diane, Robin, Chris, etc. STOP sounding stupid. A historic event!
