Encore Fail! Bentley’s ‘Liquadition’ Sign

Mercy, almighty. Bentley’s at 144 Montague Street has posted this same sign misspelling for years—in fact, previously pointed out with sweet empathy by BHB.

Has no one ever happened to mention to the shoe retailer that “Liquidation” is spelled with the “I” and “A” in somewhat different order? All youse pepes have gotta do is cut out a couple big letters, slap ’em over the current sign and all would be right with the world. Oh, sigh…

    It’s a combination word of tradition and liquidation – liquadition. Otherwise, you may think it’s a going out of business sign.

    So you’re saying it’s Bentley’s cleverness and our “fail” to get it, Lori? I can live with that!

    I got a great pair of boots there a few weeks ago at 50% off. They can spell it any way they want as long as I am concerned. I find spelling errors all the time in our newspapers. Now that’s something to be concerned about!

    I guess it shows that our language is a fluid medium…

    A generation – the open classroom of the 1960s and 1970s had been taught to spell phonetically to sound out the word. Regretfully this results in a number of spelling errors words are not spelled as they sound.
