I know some of us get irritated by bad/clumsy grammar so here is a thread where we can share our pet hates - here is one of mine...

We don't get the dreaded 'r' disease in Scotland - but I have to suffer it occasionally in crosswords (in 'sounds like' clues which don't work for us). A current annoyance is the spreading of 'could of', 'should of' (instead of 'have') etc - lazy and wrong!

I dislike the use of times instead of multiply.
Times is not a verb and I cringe every time I hear it on Countdown

I'm listening to a young girl being interviewed on the TV.
She includes the word 'like' in virtually every sentence.
I don't understand why so many of them do it, like!

... so, they're now training people - who might otherwise, er, be hesitant - to begin with "so". Add that to the aaargh list!

And now I must away to the other pedants' thread!
