Recommended Posts


 

Webinar

If that the only one that annoys you count yer blessings :grin:

 

 

I assure you that this will be a running thread.

 

I was just in an online meeting, and the host kept calling it a webinar, and for a moment I wished I was sitting right there so I could slap her across the face.

The buzzwords don't bother me as long as they are used correctly.

 

What bothers me is poor grammar and bad spelling. Examples:

 

1. You're and your

2. Between you and I

3. I could care less

4. Use of apostrophes to pluralize a noun

5. Use of nauseous when the speaker means nauseated

I agree with all of those, especially #4. I also hate it when someone doesn't know the difference between "fewer" and "less," as well as the improper use of the word "myself."

  • "Conversating"

Random overemphasized foreign-language pronunciation of words or proper names when you're otherwise speaking American English with no discernible accent: "I gave the package of puffed rice to Rrrrrrrrramone", or "I had the chicken salad on a ccchhwhasssannn"

"Aight?"

I'm trying to hold back here, but I'll add "effect" when "affect" should be used. Either can be used as a noun or verb.

 

Also, lie and lay. One lies down but lays a glass on the table.
