I ran into an interesting grammatical question while coding yesterday. We were doing a change to some in-app text, on a page where checks that are no longer valid are registered.
The original text read "Stopped/Voided Checks", because the reason for checks to be stopped is because they have been voided, so the two words are connected in meaning (some checks that are stopped are stopped for different reasons, but they both fall under the same category for our app's purposes)
As part of the change, we also have to include forged checks on this page, so my boss instructed me to change the text to "Stopped/Voided, Forged Checks".
However, I contended that "Stopped/Voided and Forged Checks" seems more gramatically correct.
It also occurs to me that "Stopped/Voided Forged Checks" could be used, or "Stopped/Voided, and Forged Checks".
Which of these instances are most proper? I'm in favor of "Stopped/Voided and Forged Checks" personally, because it reflects the inclusion of both Stopped/Voided AND Forged checks, but I am not certain that this is correct.
