Cunning Linguists Languages and their use. What languages do you speak and why? What do words really mean? Can you say things in one language that you can't say in another? Should there be a national language? How many languages should a person know and what are they?

Angry Re: Words that piss you Off

When people say much instead of many. The word doesn't really bother me, just the grammatical error. I was at my freind's house one time and he asked his dad "How much games are there in an NHL season?" I wanted to scream

Online:

"PWN" or any variation of it. I especially hate why people actually say it with the "p" instead of just saying own.


Regular: polynomial. I had this nun who taught math freshman year in high school. The annoying way she said that word, and the amount of times she said it within a class period, almost drove me mad. I hate that word with a passion

"Gay" used as a pejorative.

"Cohort" used as a singular noun as a synonym for crony, rather than as a plural collective. (A Roman cohort was a group of soldiers, sort of like "platoon" or "company."

"Decimate" used as a synonym for "totally destroy." When the Romans decimated a village, they killed ten percent of the population, which hardly wiped it out.

"Infer" used as a synonym for "imply"--they are closer to antonyms.

Word like "girlz", "phonez" - basically anything ending in "s" which has been replaced by "z".

Rapper-speak also makes me cringe. I die a little inside every time I hear the word "blud".

I've heard this a lot too - some overly dramatic kid in my school said "I totally decimated all of them" (talking about a video game).

I like the word decimate, I would never use it but I think it sounds... interesting, I suppose.

I hate the word extreme, it's just ugly.
