Do we need a Comma Liberation Front?
UK Telegraph does it again.
From an article about a book on WW1 camouflage and trickery:
One photograph shows a mustachioed soldier attempting to read a map from within a makeshift tree stump, made from chicken wires and leaving him “simultaneously cramped and horribly exposed”.
Why was the map made from chicken wires? And what are chicken wires? Wires shaped to look like chickens? Wires made from white meat? Fried connections? Cowardly conductors? Draft resistors?
Fortunately the picture clears it up. Contrary to the written sentence, the tree stump
was made of chickenwire.
