Just heard a guy on TV talking about how his house had cost an "exuberant amount of money."

Liked that one.

I recall a coworker using 'bath' as a verb: to bath the baby.

You were in a collage? Cool!

I recall, on some forum, someone being informed that 'alot' wasn't a word; said poster said he thought it should be and would continue using it.

Just saw this one in another thread, and it reminded me that I've seen/heard it and other mutations of it before.

The jest of the situation is...

redundancies: while preparing the thanksgiving mashed potato (once mashed it becomes just the one potato, don't you know), i had to log on to report a kennel club affected announcement which struck me odd "...such a great sense of presence" which could only have been made worse by saying "presented such a great sense of presence."

Bumping this up:

I'd mentioned I'd heard 'unthawed' back in September.

Recently the local news was interviewing a local firefighter about the cause of a fire.

"Homeowner was using a blowtorch to dethaw the pipes."

I've resisted posting on this thread to this point but I've seen this phrase/word used incorrectly three times in the past couple of days: "make due".

If we still have month left over at the end of the money, we make do, not make due...although I sometimes want to make dew.

sapient vs. sentient

All beings are sentient beings (check with your local Buddhists)

A smaller number are sapient.
