If you do this, I might hit you
Incorrect usage of the english language is something that gets under my skin. I get if you are using text speak, or using well-known abbreviations, but there are some words that just need to be used correctly…. unless you like knuckle impressions on your face.
Asked. It is NOT aksed or axed. Spell it out. It’s right there for you ….A.S.K.E.D. aaaasssskked. does the E throw you off? think if it as ASKD. Maybe that will help
Twice. This is probably a southern thing, but it’s TWICE. Not twiced. Please stop.
Across. Not Acrosst or Acrossed. This must also be a southern thing because I hear it a lot. But I’m here in the south, raised in the south and I say across like the dictionary tells me to.
Idea VS Ideal. Both real words. Sometimes an idea is an IDEAL. But if you are saying IDEAL and you mean IDEA. Get ready for a rapid fire of punches.
Supposedly: believed or reputed to be the case. Supposably is NOT a word. Supposable is and it means: capable of being supposed. These words are not synonyms and most people who use Supposably actually mean it as Supposedly so they are using it wrong which irritates me and makes my fist twitch.
Randomly dropping off letters in a word. For example: saying an when you mean and. AN is a word and should not be used in place of AND. That drives me crazy!!!! AN comes before an object. An Ice cream cone. An apple. AND links things together. Ice cream AND apples. NOT Ice cream an apples. That just doesn’t make sense.
I already have a bruised knuckle from practicing my punching on a punching bag, and I really don’t want to have to punch you and hurt myself further. So, please just use words the way they are meant to be used and spare my fist.
