11 Commonly Used Made-Up Words That Drive Us Insane
When it comes to words, people have all sorts of pet peeves.

There are the common mispronunciations that drive people crazy. (When you say "escape" it is "es-cape" and not "ex-cape.") There also are the language errors -- like confusing "affect" and "effect" -- that put people over the edge. "It makes me nuts when someone says they're going to 'speak to' something when they mean they're going to 'speak about' something," said Huff/Post50 Facebook fan Pam Blodgett.

But probably worse than all that are the words people say every day that aren't really, well, words. There are some words we wouldn't mind seeing added to the dictionary -- like "hushpicious," which describes the suspicion one feels when the house becomes eerily quiet while young children are at home and not sleeping. But there are some we don't want to see or hear anywhere.

How about phrases?

..."at the same token"


It's either "at the same time" or "by the same token". Cringe every time I hear it.

"On accident" instead of "by accident"
Fun Fact for the Week: One time Nikolai Tesla made Mark Twain shit himself.

True Story: Twain was touring Tesla’s lab when Tesla showed him a vibrating platform that was meant to “impart vitality.” “You mean it will make me regular?” Twain jumped on the platform and within 90 seconds Twain jumped off the platform and yelped “Quick, Tesla, where is it?” hightailing it to the water closet.

Bless my husband's heart. I love him and he's a good man, but he uses "immaculent" instead of "immaculate" on a regular basis. Several times a week, usually. I try not to cringe.

Irregardless is NOT a real word, you moran, it's a double negative, canceling out any meaning.

Anyways, or anyhoo, for anyway, drives me nuts, too.

Also should OF, would OF, could OF.

I once saw a group of inmates on the side of the road picking up trash and the word "trustee" was on the back of the shirt. The correct word is "trusty".
