Common Phrases

This page provides a list of common messages on signs in public places such as retail outlets, food courts, common spaces in buildings, etc. It serves as a reference for the planning and crafting of English language signs for public places. Besides signs, there are also all manner of special notices and advertisements put up by commercial establishments in public places. Over the years, the Speak Good English Movement has found many of these to have the wrong use of English words, wrong spelling of words and incorrect or awkward phrasing that skewed the intended message or otherwise reflect poor usage of the English language.
