I was listening to a radio show the other day. People were calling in with their pet peeves regarding misuse of language. Some of the examples were:
· The use of the word irregardless instead of regardless
· Adding an ‘s’ to Fred Meyer
· Saying “I seen it” instead of “I saw it”
· Saying “I could care less” instead of “I couldn’t care less”
One that has always bugged me is when people leave off the ‘ly’ on adverbs. It is pretty prevalent. I saw this at Home Depot today.
It also bugs me when people say supposably and anyways.
