I’m a writer so one of my biggest pet peeves is when people use common words incorrectly. This probably seems to get worse with text messages and posts on social media. Often the offenders are quick to blame “autocorrect” and it might actually be at fault some of the time. More often it is as simple as someone not understanding the exact meaning of what they are writing/typing.
I’ve put together a graphic with some of the words used incorrectly. Save it. Share it. Print it out. Do whatever it takes to make sure you and those you know are using these words correctly. I’ve embedded the Facebook graphic below so it is easy for you to share with your friends. For those reading this post via e-mail, read this post on the Web to see the embedded graphic.
