Re: How Many AAAAAs In Khaaan?

I wonder what the graph would look like for the oft-misspelled (at least around here) "canon"?

Exactly as many as in "It's REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!"

Well, actually one more to the left of the 'F' if you wanna nitpick, which of course you do.

Hopefully, we can all agree there are more "A's" in Khan than there are "N's" in canon.

Um, is my apostrophe usage correct?

I don't think so, but a good joke is a good joke, and yours is very correct, so I wouldn't sweat it.

To answer your question, "A's" implies possessive and you wanted plural. I would have written in "A"s and "N"s.

So in answer to the question, there are both more As and Ns in "canon", than in "Khanon".
