There are others to add. Here's one:

I see corps/core misused often on sports boards. Correct usage: The core of our defense will likely be our linebackers. (meaning: our linebackers will be our foundation.) Our receiving corps will be strong, yet again. (The receivers as a group or unit.)

Incorrect usage: I'm pumped about our RB core! (Did you mean their abs??)

What else can we learn? (And, yes, this is a holier-than-thou thread. Rather than get angry, perhaps you could learn from it. If you choose to insult me, try to do so with some flair.)

Not really, of course - that's just one of my favorite replies to any situation, grammatical or otherwise, for obvious reason

(not sure if actually considered grammar) "Conner" - JESUS. Can't stand that.

I also hate seeing someone write, "He scored and than screamed." Then /=/ than.

There are some posters who literally have no, clue where. to put, a period or. comma.

Also, someone should write a book on the use of ellipses. It is " . . . " not "………." (Alternatively, the use at the end of a sentence is different. . . . It should be like < that.)

Default Re: Click this link if you need grammar help

Seeing "ya'll" makes me sick to my stomach. Using "y'all" is absolutely fine, it's an accepted contraction of the words you and all. Great. Perfect. Please use y'all as often as you wish. What the F*** is "ya'll" supposed to be a contraction for? Ya will? Ya shall? Just because one has seen a pattern in their life where contractions often end with 'll, it does *not* mean all words are made into contractions by putting 'll at the end of them. People do not think about what they say. They use phrases and idioms all day, and have no clue why. They're just repeating sounds they've heard in the past, without taking the time to learn what they are actually saying, or why they are saying it.

I see (and hear) the following a lot:

"I seen you at the store" or "I seen you driving to work"

No, you SAW me at the store. Ugh, irritates me. The kids will say it now just to drive me nuts!
