I was older than I should have been before I learned it wasn’t should of been.

I also used to mix up used to use to. Did you use to do that, too? It’s not so confusing once you get used to it.

I don’t want to admit something you probably won’t believe. I used to mistake want and won’t when won’t opened the question won’t you save me.

I mixed up effect and affect but I’ve come to believe their meanings overlap more than most people think.

I used to think the knell in death knell came from the nail in the coffin not the death knell bell.

I’m convinced nobody knows for sure if it’s hear hear or here here.

I wasn’t going to tell you I didn’t know gonna is spelled going to.

Every single one of my colleagues pronounces 'bearing' like 'beering'.
I bet they also think a woman beers children.
Germans...

^ That's an interesting confusion.

In Britain people used to send money by post, for which they would buy a special Post Office voucher, which the recipient could then redeem in another Post Office; it was safer than sending cash. As a kid I thought it was a Post Lorder, until one day I saw it written down: Postal Order.

I'm even more persnickety in German and Russian.
And thanks for teaching me a new word. It's a keeper.

"Literally".


The word itself has a much more limited scope that its current use would suggest. I can't watch an interview without hearing it being misused dozens of times.

As fascist as I am about grammar, 'literally' never bothered me.
It's called hyperbole, for god's sake.

^ Well, this thread gives us all a chance to find something new to get annoyed about, grindy.
