GlamourGirl commented on the word impact
I know it's a losing battle by now, but I will never abide this word as a transitive verb. You don't "impact" something, you "affect" it. You can destroy it, tame it, lengthen it, shorten it, kill it, nurture it, hurt it, help it, bend it, build it, or do any number of other things to affect it, but you don't "impact" it!
