Occam's_Doctor: Irregardless of the irony, I literaly went crazy when I saw on the first month anniversary of the hurricanes decimation of over 20 homes. I should have perused this in the paper vice the television.
Pocket Ninja: Honestly, though, lists like this are really just designed to make Grammar Nazi's feel well about themselves. In all truthfulness, the "correct" meaning of individual words, per se, is a mute point. All that matters in spoken language is weather or not your meaning is clear. As long as people understand you, than you've communicated correctly.
johnnyrocket: The "would of"/"should of" is just plain illiterate idiocy. Some of the others seem like natural evolutions of have language.
Cheron: Sometimes the meaning of words change. So these words literally mean what the user thinks the mean they just don't mean what they use to mean. Ironic
taurusowner: \Incorrect use of decimate annoys me\\Glad the list included it
randomarrangement: taurusowner: one...their...still cool with shiatty grammar though right?
skinink: I didn't know about "over" or "decimate". Glad to find out. Now if people would stop using the incorrect phrase, "I could care less".
