Once again FOAF has come to the rescue, this time from Facebook:



An incorrect use of words – particularly replacing one word with another word that sounds similar but has a diffident meaning – possibly fuelled by a deep-seeded desire to sound more educated, witch results in an attempt to pawn off an incorrect word in place of a correct one.  In academia, such flaunting of common social morays is seen as almost sorted and might result in the offender becoming a piranha, in the Monday world, after all is set and done, such a miner era will often leave normal people unphased.  This is just as well sense people of that elk are unlikely to tow the line irregardless of any attempt to better educate them.  A small percentage, however, suffer from severe acyrologiaphobia, and it is their upmost desire to see English used properly.  Exposure may cause them symptoms that resemble post-dramatic stress disorder and, eventually, descend into whole-sale outrage as they go star-craving mad.  Eventually, they will succumb to the stings and arrows of such a barrage, and suffer a complete metal breakdown, leaving them curled up in the feeble position.

  1. This is a wanderful post, Curmie! It really stirred up my coma toes brain cells and made me reminisk about the many who made carairs of word-play. I can think of few howsomever who could exceed in pleasing an audience so well as Victor Borge, God blast him. Here’s a link to an acoolade about him. Near the end it intrudes a marvelous clip of one of his routines.

  2. Hahaha, what a wonderfully well-conceived post. (Er… am I guilty of it already?)…
    Ok, from one curmudgeon to another, I see this too often and I wince every time someone uses words like you did here, but earnestly.
