Aarrgghh! Stop!

Giugno 2017
Vietato calpestare… l’inglese! Questa scritta adesiva compare niente meno che nella nuova elegantissima linea 5 della metropolitana di Milano, i cui responsabili non hanno evidentemente ritenuto opportuno chiedere la consulenza di un madrelingua. Ecco cosa avrebbero dovuto scrivere...
The wrong sign
The wrong sign
The right sign
The right sign

This sign (left) was photographed on the Milan Underground’s otherwise perfect new “Line Five.” The city authorities dedicated a lot of time, energy and money to building the driverless line, but they should also have invested a relatively modest amount in hiring an English language consultant. That person would probably have suggested the words that can be found in this sign (below left).

If you see English mistakes (in Italy, the UK, anywhere!) that make you scream “Aarrgghh!!!” take a photo (please make sure
it’s in focus!) and send it to redazione@speakupmagazine.it
We will publish the best (that is, the worst) both here and on our Facebook page.
