If you don’t see the mistake in the headline above, don’t worry — you’re hardly alone. Highlighting the mistake is pedantic, but, so often is the case with little bits of grammar. But let’s do it anyway. The problem is with the use of the words “comprised of” — it’s wrong. Grammarist Moschino Sylvester Print Jersey Sweatshirt Dress White Red Black t1R6vDznz
:

In other words, you shouldn’t ever use the phrase “comprised of.” And there’s no need to take Grammarist’sword for it — the OED agrees , calling the construction “incorrect.”

But Grammarist is correct that “to stop it is probably a lost cause” — emphasis on the word “probably.” Just ask Bryan Henderson.

Henderson is one of the many thousands of volunteers who regularly edit Wikipedia, where he’s known by the username “ Roccobarocco Short Dresses Black O8CZBOD3
.” But unlike most Wikipedians, Henderson’s focus is exceptionally narrow. As Backchannel explains , “while some Wikipedia editors focus on adding content or vetting its accuracy, and others work to streamline the site’s grammar and style, generally few, if any, adopt Giraffedata’s approach to editing: an unrelenting, multi-year project to fix exactly one grammatical error.” Specifically, Henderson’s self-assigned mission is to remove instances of “comprised of” wherever he can. And because Wikipedia is a world-editable project, that means Henderson can remove the error almost everywhere.

So, Henderson has done just that — editing out the words “comprised of” Ovye By Cristina Lucchi Espadrilles Beige LAYVD1TgxF
.

It’s not an entirely manual process. Henderson built a program — a “bot” in Wikipedian parlance — which scours the online encyclopedia in search of the offending phrase. Then, on most Sunday nights (and at various other times), Henderson spends about an hour reviewing the list generated by that bot and makes the necessary edits. Here’s a list of edits he made last night, for example:

The whole process takes about an hour or so — Henderson estimates that the phrase finds its way into articles about 70 or so times each week.

In Henderson’s mind, he’s making Wikipedia — and through it, the world — a better place. On a Wikipedia page about his efforts , he describe the construction “comprised of” as having a few flaws: it’s “completely unnecessary,” “illogical,” “imprecise,” often used “to aggrandize a sentence,” and is a departurefrom the etymology of the word “comprise.” (Although not everyone agrees .) And, Henderson continues, his endeavor is consistent with the principles that govern Wikipedia:

For many, that Henderson is so dedicated to this endeavor may seem strange and quixotic. And sure, it is — but it’s a hobby like any other. Is it any weirder than emailing trivia to a list comprised of — er, I mean, composed of — a fairlylarge number of strangers? You be the judge.

: Despite Henderson’s note above, there are some situations where Wikipedia’s editing community has instituted a style guide. For example, the English-language version of Wikipedia has some pages which use American English, others which use British English, and still others that use another dialect altogether. Which one to use? There are guidelines for that . The general rule? Don’t change a page from one version to another.

: The Bicholim Conflict The war documented in great detail on Wikipedia — except for the fact that the war never happened.

. It’s comprised of… er, consists of “300 Wiki Theme Cards, 4 Dry Erase Boards, 4 Dry Erase markers, 100 Tokens and a Sand Timer” per the Amazon page.

Comprise means to consist of or to be composed of. Compose means to make up the constituent parts of. Parts compose the whole, and the whole comprises the parts. For example, we could say that the United States comprises 50 states and that the 50 states compose the United States.
