Paul and I have had a debate about the following copy. I think there’s a grammatical mistake in it, Paul thinks it looks like a mistake but sounds right, and hence isn’t really a mistake. His client agrees with him. This is really interesting because in my mind, this is an example of something which is, technically, a grammatical mistake, but which is so embedded in usage that native speakers see it as correct. Or is it? Can you spot it?

We work with stone. We make stone work for you.

We select it, shape it and design ways in which stone can become your own statement of creativity and enduring permanence, in your home or in your business.

Our experience and love affair with stone spans fifty years. We employ the most skilled stonemasons who have had an association with stone almost all of their working lives.

We welcome enquiries from private individuals and the commercial sector, we regularly enjoy close creative partnerships with designers and architects, and we offer a trade service to fireplace retailers. Projects can range from individual homes to major corporate installations.

Applications are limited only by your imagination.
