Lots of missing apostrophes in dont, cant, wont etc. Also can't find an edition online which matches the text used here. The version on PG seems to be a different one. – Jberkel (talk) 20:05, 25 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

Shaw deliberately omitted most of his apostrophes considering them redundant. See w:Apostrophe#Particular cases. So these aren't typos. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 06:23, 26 October 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Beeswaxcandle: Ah ok, thanks for the info. Wonder if there's a way to embed this information in the source text, so I doesn't get accidentally corrected (like sic, but invisible). – Jberkel (talk) 12:05, 8 November 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Jberkel: Yep. Use {{sic}} rather than {{SIC}}. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 04:51, 9 November 2016 (UTC)Reply
