Over at Written Expressions today's blog is a rant on the misuse of "I," "me," "us," "we," and "them." (Me and him are best friends, etc). I agree that this is a seriously irritating epidemic. It makes me cringe every time I hear it.
However, my personal language laziness rant has to do with the misuse of "less" and "fewer."
Diet soda has less calories than regular.
10 items or less.
Apparently advertisering copywriters everywhere have less intelligence or education than they need to do their jobs!
(p.s., the misuse of "your" versus "you're" gets me irritated too....)
So, what's your language laziness pet peeve?
