The most misused words that I have noticed are to and too

to and too are Two separate words.

when put together they form the word tu tu. The modern tutu is a dress worn as a costume in a ballet performance, often with attached bodice. It may be made of tarlatan, muslin, silk, tulle, gauze, or nylon.
Yes in the ballet flight of the bumble bee they go air borne, which means flight, flight is taking off, taking off is stripping, stripping means remove, remove translates to shed, a shed is a shelter, shelters saved people from bombs, bombs explode, exploding means to come apart, apart means separate. separate means alone, alone is solo. solo is hans in star wars who also went air borne.

yes pattie, one vicious circle, did you know a circle never begins or ends, it also has two sides to it, the inside and the outside.insiders give tips. tips are left on tables, tables have legs, legs are found at the bottom of torso's.
at the top of torso's are brains.,
So after a lifetime of struggle, Webster was finally definded! and should have had his work Preventing Grammer Peeves until you started things right back up again in here.

Here sounding just like hear. ah the English language a 200,000 year extention from the Cave man.

yes he first spoke and a spoke is found on a bicycle wheel and blah blah blah blah..

English spelling and grammar can be very frustrating.

With the advent of the computer and texting, many are using single letters for whole words.... sighhhh.

I guess I'm a bit of a dinosaur since I prefer correct spelling and grammar. That being said, usually I'm not bothered by the errors folks may make.

Unfortunately, sometimes my fingers don't co-operate and typos occur.

After having English Grammar drilled into my head during adolescence, I find it hard not to overlook grammatical errors. I don't criticize the individual, just make mental notes of the errors.

Irregardless is to a word.......... I use it all the time! lol.
I don't pay too much attention to other people's grammar, but when I write something, I am critical of my own.
But when I talk, I don't pay that much attention to it...... in fact, I fracture grammar rules all the time on purpose.


Spring is here, it's beautiful outside. But let's sit on the computer and insult each other!

Can you imagine a foreigner trying to learn our language? How confused they must be.

Here's mine:
Using 'criteria' as a singular noun.
Saying 'garnish' instead of 'garnishee' when grabbing someone's pay packet.
Not knowing the difference between 'infer' and 'imply'.

It puzzles me when I hear someone saying they did or said something 'unconsciously' instead of 'subconsciously'. When you're unconscious I don't think you're able to do or say anything.

That's a good one... Maybe they were unconscious!!! LOL
