Don’t make me come in there and separate you two

The sharp-eyed freelance editor Sarah C. Jones got this email from Loft, and it made her crazy. Not for the 60% off.

  • Getaway is a noun. You enjoy a getaway, not a get away.
  • Get away is a verb, with an adverb. Two separate words. It’s never time to getaway. It’s always time to get away.

Well, maybe it’s not always time to. But whenever you do it, it’s two words.

Otherwise, Sarah goes nuts.

  1. I have no idea what you are referring to. The photo doesn’t contain “get away” or “getaway”.

    1. Thank you for your comment. The image is a screen shot of an email, which is comprised of a subject line (at the top) and a graphic (in the body of the email). My post refers to the subject line. I have now included, in the body of my post, an image of the subject line alone. I hope this clears things up.
