Learn the difference

Recommended Posts

This is just a general plea to learn the difference between common words.

Two that I see very often on the huddle:

Dominate used instead of dominant

Core used instead of corps

I know it's lame to be a grammar nazi, that's why I'm making this thread instead of pointing it out whenever somebody does it. Feel free to add ones that annoy you.

When people can't seem to figure out the difference between "have" and "of" probably annoys me the most.

 

"We should of fired Rivera last year."

 

Oh really? Should we of? I don't think we should of. I mean, you of to of a coach, and Ron's as good as anyone else available.

i don't give one fug unless it is incomprehensible. i was a history major in college. so im in the habit of just writing as fast as possible then editing afterwards.

The only grammar mistake that bothers me is the incorrect use of the reflexive. I think it is because some people are not only certain that they are right but also think it is a more formal way to speak.

 

"Myself and John are heading down to the game"
