20 Phrases You Probably Spell Wrong

Published 4 years ago

My grammar pet peeve? People mixing up “hoard” and “horde”. Elite Daily’s Kaylin Pound even made a list of mispronounced phrases! The most obvious point on the list is “irregardless”: if you haven’t learned that it’s not a word, not even after an American Dad episode mentioning it, you should do it now. Same goes for “I could care less”, which is saying that you haven’t reached your minimal care levels. And I couldn’t care less about your excuses.

I’ll admit that I might have said “statue of limitations” once or twice, and I must have written “free reign” a few times in my long years as a respectable dark fantasy writer. ’tis a crying shame, but, thanks to this post, I shall do it nevermore!
