Re: Friday Fun: What Pet Peeve makes you puke?
I have many linguistic pet peeves. I've already acknowledged that I've
an evil grammarian living in my head (who even corrects my netspeak,
unasked). But, I have to say what really gets me going is flagrant
misspellings and misuses.
Many of my friends and peers are very bright and have interesting
vocabularies, but pay not attention to how they use words. If you're
going to use a word make sure a) you know how to spell it and b) you
know what it really means and when it's appropriate to use. If you do
not know how to spell or apply a word, either don't use the word, or
look it up.
Technosavvy people have no excuse for not taking five seconds to use
Google's "define:" command. And there are literally thousands of
Time to go feed the peeves.
...and the Jabberwocky's (sic).
