Okay, so I guess I will start this; Why is the grammar so bad in 'The Lottery'?
For instance, there is, in the Seventh paragraph an error like: “but years and years ago this p3rt of the ritual had been allowed to lapse.” Now, I am not sure if that is just the person who posted it on the webpage that is hosting this text, because there is no way that in 1948' there was a typo with a letter '3' in it. So, again I will end with my question. Why are there so many grammar errors?
It's the page. It's, unfortunately, the best web posting of the short story that I've found. There are worse ones out there, that I've seen. And a few omit various paragraphs.
