There, Their and They’re
“That’s the guy that did it..” Nope. Wrong. It is “That’s the guy who did it.”
“That” is for objects, “Who” is for people….but no one seems to care anymore.
If you cannot differentiate affect and effect, then and than or they’re, their and there, I cannot take you seriously, will assume you probably have no idea what youre talking about in debates and deep down believe you may be incompetent in philosophical aspects of life and wouldn’t consider any advice from you unless you say something distinct that sparks a sudden interest to me and have a detailed description that makes sense or reasonable enlightening explanation
When people say “I could care less” instead of “I couldn’t care less”.
The alarming number of people who can’t tell the difference between “woman” and “women”
One I see on Reddit all the time, using “then” instead of “than.” As in, “better late then never!” Sometimes it’s probably a typo but other times people use it multiple times in a post and I want to throw myself in front of a bus.
“Less than” instead of “fewer”
Please make it stop. It’s not even shorter than “should’ve” and makes no fucking sense.
When people use “myself” when it should be “me” or “I”
Ex: “John and myself went to the store yesterday.” No, John and I.
Or someone tells me “send an email to Sue and CC myself.” No, “send an email to Sue and CC me.” If I’m saying it and I’m sending the email, I can CC myself but I don’t CC yourself.
I don’t like abbreviations of phrases like tbh,wdym,lmfao,brb…
It takes too long to learn for a non native english speaker to learn like me
It’s not “How does it look like?”
It’s “What does it look like?”
or “How does it look?”
When English speakers say, “I’m doing good.” No you’re not doing good, you’re doing well.
“Should have went” instead of “gone”. I’ve seen even highly educated people making that mistake, I’m talking about professional writers and such.
Obviously I’ve even seen the absolute clusterfuck that is “should of went”, which just makes my want to put my fist through a wall.
I do it too, but “there’s” when it refers to plurals. Like: There’s 50 owls on my roof!
But I get it. The full sentence would start with There are… but there isn’t a there’re
Ending a sentence with a preposition. I know it’s not a hard and fast rule, but “where are you at?” makes me crazed.
When people write “rediculous”
…like it’s twice diculous
Shortening the word “definitely” to “def” in a sentence when other words in said sentence have an equal amount or more number of letters.
Not really a grammar mistake, but that’s just being lazy.
Who, when it should be Whom….You bunch of savages!!!
