I agree. Grammar rules need to be enforced with the fury of 1,000 suns. The occasional typo or slip up is fine, but most of the time it's sheer laziness that prevents people from correcting it.

I always cringe at this one... Do you have "two cent" for the cashier?

I cringe when I hear the fake word "exspecially". It makes me want to strangle the speaker.

"Supposibly."

Speaking of, I just noticed our cafe in the hospital that specializes in coffee, has "Expresso drinks" listed on their sign.

Other combination/words that bug me:

Flustrated, fustrated, irregardless, supposively, for all intensive purposes, could care less instead of couldn't care less, the misuse of their, there and they're, too, to and two and your and you're.

I always love it when I see a sign that reads "No Busses in This Lane," or variations with that usage. I just want to go kiss somebody to be contrary.

"Noone" annoys me, as does "alot."

I HATE "alot," Jeff. Hate it! >:(

You now what I really hate, Krause? I hate people complaining about my grammar. Probably as much as they hate me complaining about shoulder bars. I get it :) We are all doing the same thing.


Billy

Aww, you guys hate Alot? But it's so damn loveable! It would probably be sad to hear you say that.

Except spelling and grammar are essential parts of education, and a requirement for a solid majority of employment opportunities in life. Shoulder bars/lap bars, etc aren't even on the same level.

Nothing annoy's me more than the use of superfluous apostrophes.


Hi

Thanks, now you made me look over my previous post to make sure I didn't accidentally do that.

You're right, though - that, and creating a possessive tense out of a restaurant or store name, such as "Giant Eagle's" or "Chipotle's".

Man, two grammar hijacks in one night? This is what I miss when I go to bed early. ;) And I'm mad that BBSpeed beat me to the Alot reference!

"Definately", "Impliment", are two misspelled words that show up here quite a bit.

My favorites are the ones that don't get caught by spell-check. "Defiantly" when people mean "definitely," for example. Another good one is "viola!" in place of "voila!" -- I always picture a French magician playing a stringed instrument.

I can't stand "Should of" instead of "Should've." It doesn't even come close to making sense!

Even better, when they type "walla".

Oh, per say instead of per se is a good one, too.

I've actually seen this one twice in my life on the internet:

Someone used "pre-madonna" instead of "prima donna."

Sometimes you just have to chuckle.


Raven-Phile's avatar

I'm not even sure who you could call pre-Madonna. I know you can call Lady Gaga "Post-Madonna", though.
