Blunder Boards – The long opening process!
At times there will be very very subtle errors on the Boards. On the one hand, the board below seems correct. But on closer inspection, you spot the error. Ambiguity in language would mean that more than one meaning can be derived from the text. Can you say what is wrong with this board?
In this case, Opening is an event and Open is a process. While the Telugu version is correctly saying the hours in which the store will be open, the English version, though we understand it, would actually mean that the store may be opened anytime between the timings mentioned. It can also convey as that the ceremony of opening will take the whole day. The correct wording to be used is either, Open Hours or Working Hours.
