Being an English major sometimes meant people assumed I might correct their grammar as they spoke. Then I went and taught Spanish for a bunch of years, and everyone forgot that I could still correct him/her if I really wanted to. HA!
Except that’s obnoxious, so even if you mess up numbers 6, 8, 9, or 14 below, I will refrain from getting all up in your face about it. Well… I might slam you for 14, but only because it is the MOST OVERUSED WORD OF 2012. So, um, there’s that.
I was actually a little reluctant to share this because, to be truthful, I really don’t care when people make these mistakes in informal situations. However, I like fun reference graphics. So that’s what this is – something just for fun that might also be useful!
It may be a Minnesota thing, but the whole “borrow/lend” thing is missing from this handy graphic, otherwise I thought it was a fun thing that a colleague shared this week.
