I never did well in english at school. Always figured if people knew what you were saying, no harm, no foul. However, during the last few years, I have noticed more frequently that even journalists and other media are doing worse with written an spoken english.
Case in point, the following from a story headline
" Youngest Albertan dies of COVID-19"
This to me would seem to say that a child died of Covid the second it was born.
I think the correct statement should have been "to die" instead of "dies of"
Am I right?
