Note: The amount of feedback that we’ve received to this page has been outstanding, but we feel that it’s now time to close the comments section. Browse the comments below to see the pet peeves of our readers.
While we (Sherry Coven and Paul Yeager) get the chance to talk about our language pet peeves every day, you may not. We know that you have at least one–everyone who hears about Paul’s book (Literally, the Best Language Book Ever) invariably has an idea or two.
Leave a comment to tell us yours–maybe it’ll end up in a future book.
We intend this to be a list of pet peeves, not an open forum discussion related to individual pet peeves. There are plenty of forums out there where people debate language and grammar topics; this isn’t one of them. We’ll moderate comments with that idea in mind in the future.
Note: Comments will not be published if they include any type of personal attack, inflammatory language, overly negative language, or are not directly related to a pet peeve.
