Pet peeves, you said?

An overabundance of abbreviations and acronyms
Considerable (as in, considerable experience)
Based on (when they really mean, on the basis of)
Due to (when they mean, because of)
Personifying inanimate objects
Misplaced modifiers and dangling participles (Driving down Highway 40, the
plant came into view)

i.e. and e.g. where they are not appropriate

Enough for now!
