Words matter to scholars but not the AP

Ted Frank gives us this bit of Lagniappe:

It’s far from clear to me that the University of Minnesota got it wrong in titling a pathway “Scholars Walk” rather than “Scholars’ Walk.” But I am sure that the AP got it wrong by suggesting “Scholar’s Walk” as an option.

I thought the same thing. This [the AP’s error, not Ted Frank’s writing], apparently, is what professional writing with its editorial controls and filters churns out these days. What a shame.
