super-charolastra commented on the word touch base
Hate it. What was once a perfectly good baseball-based metaphor has become so overused it makes me sick.

super-charolastra commented on the word escalate
I hate it when this gets used transitively. Gah!
super-charolastra commented on the word should of
This is one of those where the misspelling more accurately reflects common (I would say accepted) pronunciation than the correct spelling. That doesn't mean it should be misspelled; it just can't be counted as a mispronunciation.
super-charolastra commented on the word febuary
This is by far the most common American pronunciation for this word. Spell it February, but don't expect not to be thought of as pretentious if you pronounce that first R.
super-charolastra commented on the word ice tea
If you want to criticize people for WRITING it this way, I'm fine with that. But articulating the D in speech is just idiotic, unless you're giving a sermon or something. And I'm not sure why you'd be mentioning iced tea in a sermon anyway...
super-charolastra commented on the word orf
It's also the state TV broadcaster in Austria. Never knew this was an English word, so that's kind of hilarious...
