the langer's ball

Got a nice email from Michael from The Langer's Ball (maybe a play on langball?). They are a 2-piece Irish Group that has been performing in and around the Twin Cities in the U.S.

I had a quick look at their website and they have The Langer's Blog! No RSS feed tho, so I wouldn't classify it as a real blog. In my eyes a blog has to have a RSS feed!

They do a nice trad version of Galway Girl, which you can listen to here:

So all this has brought doubt into my mind at the title of my own blog: A Langers Blog.

Should there be an apostrophe in my title?! I wondered about this before, but just decided to leave it out. So should I have one?

  • A Langers Blog
  • A Langer's Blog
  • A Langers' Blog

    Probably, if you want to be gramattically correct. It doesn't really mattter though!

  2. Does 'a' refer to 'blog' or 'langer(s)'?

    A Langers Blog: Langers is used as an adjectical-noun to describe 'blog', like a 'langers blog' was its own blog genre.

    A Langer's Blog: A blog belonging to a langer / The blog of a langer.

    A Langers' Blog: A blog belonging to more than one langer / A blog of (the) langers.

    So it all depends on what you wish to get across with the title.

  3. I think I will leave it as it is.

    It's all too confusing to change,a and I don't really know what I want to get across in the title!

  4. Tiocfaidh ar Langer!

    Sláinte chugat mo chara.

    Séamus is ainm dom, agus tá me ina chonaí ar Longfort. Conas atá tú?

    (Please reply "as bearla", as I have just exhausted my use of the mother tongue ;P )

  5. Good shtuff. Short and sweet.
    Sure might see ya on the 6th.

    Peace & Blessings
