Lots of people speak English everyday, but most people don’t actually know what they’re saying. Mostly, they’re just mimicking what they heard someone else say. Here are some commonly mis-heard words and phrases that aren’t actually what you think they are!
I’ve had my fair share of “grammar-nazi” moments. I think most of us have. I used to correct people when they said, or wrote, something the wrong way, but I realized that It was annoying. It hasn’t stopped bothering me. It will never stop bothering me, I just won’t correct people unless I’m supposed to be correcting them.
The ever present misuse of your and you’re, two too and to, and there their and they’re, are some of the most irritating to me. It’s not necessarily the mis-user’s fault either. It could be due to a misunderstanding, or just lack of education on the differences.
So, I’m going to explain it all as simple as possible.
