I saw another interesting sign today:
See anything wrong with the wording on the sign? If not, I’ll tell you.
The sign contains a double negative. There’s nothing wrong with using a double negative but double negatives can be tricky because if used incorrectly, they don’t convey the intended meaning.
Alternatives to correct the issue of the sign’s wording:
1. No children under 18 will be permitted without an adult.
2. Children under 18 will not be permitted without an adult.
See how the way it’s worded affects the message that’s being conveyed?
