The amazing, colossal adventures of Word Girl

This is a great idea. Word Girl teaches kids a new word in each exciting instalment. It's actually quite funny.

I was a bit miffed when the girl on the desk said:

You used tonnage wrong.
I think she should have said 'incorrectly'.

Anyway, hopefully this will nurture a new generation of grammar nazis.

Fantastic. That's exactly what television networks should be doing.

I want a Wordgirl pencil case.

Sorry, Word Girl. I'm glad they didn't make her into one word.

My four-year-old son loves this show, but there have been a few mistakes on it that annoy me, too. For example, according to Captain Huggy Face, the word "pensive," means "to think a lot about something." I'll overlook the dumbed-down definition (it's a show for young children, after all), but couldn't the writers at least get the part of speech right?

I just watched this show for the first time two days ago, and right away noticed a grammar mistake. I can't remember the exact sentence, but it was during the Investigative Report announcement on television about Word Girl.
