I couldn't help myself but ask.
"People are also talking about the frequent arrest of Iowa college football players, and then there's the debate over what image Iowa should use when its turn comes to put a log for the state on quarters that will circulate nationwide." [From COCA]
Is a log a typographical error? Should it be a logo instead?
In case the above sentence is correct please explain to me what a log means here.
Yes, it should have said "logo." That article was a transcript of a National Public Radio broadcast and whomever typed it made a mistake.
Beginning in 1999, U.S. quarters (25 cent coins) were redesigned to feature George Washington on the obverse and an image/logo/representation of each of the 50 states on the reverse.
(And I suspect there's another typo, in 'whoever' )
Sorry; should've PMd you about it; but I know that sort of thing bothers students.
