I’m going to sound like a snob, I know it.
It’s hard not to with a prompt like this: “Misused and/or mispronounced word or words that make you CRAZY.” (Yes, Rachael, I edited-out my typo.)
I came up with this whole challenge idea AND developed the prompts within a span of a few minutes, i.e., I didn’t give any of it an excessive amount of thought beyond, “This could be fun.”
No one is perfect, right? Everyone makes mistakes.
When it comes to words, however, there’s a HUGE difference between a typo and a blatant and/or repeated misuse of a word or phrase. In my opinion.
My next two examples are usually encountered on the job. While I am working, not on every job.
I see that last one misused in myriad situations. Professionally, in books, publications, news broadcasts, etc. I fear it may be going the way of criteria, i.e., adopted even though it is wrong. Simply because that’s how most people use the word.
Just because everyone is doing something doesn’t make it right.
I’m looking forward to reading what fellow BBBs shared.
