Grammar Camp

I like to think I’m pretty tolerant.  But there are some things that I have a hard time tolerating. Poor grammar is one of those things.  Following is a list of the most annoying things people say on a regular basis:

  1. Irregardless
  2. “I love him (or her) to death”
  3. “Could of” and “Would of”
  4. Using “impact” as a verb
  5. “On the contrary…”
  6. “Intensive purposes”
  7. “Here, here” (it’s “Hear, hear!”)
  8. “I could care less”

 

Most annoying is the phrase “a whole ‘nother”.   I wish it would be banished from the American popular lexicon forever.
