Mrs. Williamson, my 11th grade English teacher,* had a spiel one day about how the compound word judgment has no ā€˜eā€™ but it was added later on into dictionaries by the lazy and ignorant of society.

When I saw this sign in San Francisco, I had to wonder if they had the same teacher. Ironic, somewhat, that people pass judgment over the word.

* She also wrote in a crazy type of shorthand where one character seemed to stand for a sentence and she spoke angrily sometimes in her own language. But we loved her just the same.
