A couple of years ago, one of the pastor’s of my church left, details aren’t important. He moved to Arkansas and now is the pastor at a church there. There are two things I regret since he left. 1.) I never realized how extremely funny he is. 2.) I never realized what a grammar/word nerd he actually is.
Recently on his blog, he posted a list of non-words, titled (in humor) The Ain’t List – Words That Aren’t Words.
I know I could add countless other words that perturb me beyond words (gasp) but his list is awesome. My favorites (and biggest pet peeves EVER) irregardless and unthaw.
It’s sad that my wordpress spell check immediately noticed that unthaw is not a word, but left irregardless alone….
I’m sure that is because of this. Grammar girl rocks btw!
