Also, government doublespeak (Newspeak) such as, "We need to GROW THE ECONOMY," is totally FUCKED. The correct phrase would be "Make the economy grow".

That one cracks me up. I see here quite a bit.

When friends rejoice both far and near, how can I keep from singing"

Conversate instead of converse. Where are you at? Instead of where are you? Where is it at? Instead of where is it?
Listen up instead of listen(thanks John Wayne). Self destructed while the word is destroyed.

Grammar is a lost art.

Pet peeves:
anything "Ebonics" or "text speak/type"
Saying I could care less when really it's I COULDN'T care less.
Chimley (chimney)
"Black blue jeans" no they are just "black jeans"
Also the over use of a "big" word in little conversations. Like I know someone that says "cognizant" constantly. I feel like screaming is that the ONLY big word you know?

My least favorite word: Moist

I am dismayed that so few people seem to know how to use adverbs these days, instead modifying verbs with adjectives.

Also, many tv pundits pronouncing forward ("four word") as foward (feaux word.)

"he made a fulsome apology" - it actually means the opposite of what the intention if the sentence is. Whats wrong with "a full apology"

And this might be an American-ism "I'm going to write you" - should be "write to you"

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 48406873


Irregardless is a real word used in England - the original language that American evolved from.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 44215412


Definition of IRREGARDLESS

nonstandard
: regardless
Usage Discussion of IRREGARDLESS

Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
Examples of IRREGARDLESS

I told them that irregardless of what you read in books, they's some members of the theatrical profession that occasionally visits the place where they sleep. —Ring Lardner, The Big Town, 1921

Origin of IRREGARDLESS

probably blend of irrespective and regardless
First Known Use: circa 1912
