  看到路边的广告牌上有错字,你会怎么办?大部分人可能会一笑了之,有些特别认真的人就可能会拍照留证,向有关负责的部门投诉,或者晒在微博等社交媒体平台上,供大家批评指正。

  Guerrilla proofreading means marking up a public sign to correct or point out a grammatical error or typo. Guerrilla proofreading does seem to be a popular hobby for some people. They can get quite agitated about apostrophes, invisible hyphens, misspelled words and other such entities. People who enjoy guerrilla proofreading are called guerrilla proofreaders.

  Guerrilla proofreading指把一些公共指示牌标记下来以纠正或指出其中的语法或拼写错误,我们可称之为“公众纠错”。有些人的确很喜欢做这种“公众纠错”。他们看到省略单撇号、未显示的连字符、拼错的单词等这一类错误时就会很生气。喜欢做“公众纠错”的人就被称为“公众纠错师”。

  For example:

  Tony is a college English teacher, and he really enjoys so-called guerrilla proofreading in his spare time. Whenever he sees something wrong on a public sign, he would mark it down and write to the government to complain about it.

  托尼是一位大学英语老师,他很喜欢在业余时间做所谓的“公众纠错”。只要他看到公共指示牌上有错,他就会记下来然后写信到政府部门进行投诉。
