I have watched Jeopardy for many years.
I have found Alex Trebek to be the extreme pedant. His demand for complete accuracy from the contestants is intense. Yet, he and his staff seem to be quite careless when it comes to the accuracy of the questions they prepare.
One example is the typographical error of failure to recognize the correct use of quotation marks, Here is what they should look like.
Here is what is displayed on the TV screen. Moreover, their editors should know that the comma belongs inside the quotation mark.
Occasionally, there are spelling errors such as this.
In rare instances, the word is spelled with an “n,” as above. However, in most cases “restaurateur” is the preferred spelling, even though it may not be intuitive.
Is this another example of Jeopardy’s pedantry?
