For those who want to give 105%, let's give it up for @Ernest Jones!

 

 

Metric system?

 

Maybe we should start a math errors thread!  :-D

Funny because when I first saw this in here I assumed that you had grabbed it from here: http://thesandtrap.com/t/14930/is-the-long-game-more-important-than-short-game/180_30#post_915012

But that post is a week old, and it looks like you actually got it from a post today.

 

But what would you expect from a country that plays football on 110 yard fields????

Whether it is fair or not people will judge the quality of your response and your intelligence by these types of errors.

It depends, some errors seem to leap out more than others. I don't really notice the your/you're error as much as the lose/loose error, probable because one is phonetically off and the other sounds the same either way. But then again, the there/their/they're one always leaps out at me. 

 

In any case, I always pay attention to saeval's posts because he's a smart cookie, shitty speller but smart cookie nonetheless. :-$

Just a few of my favorite words which are constantly misused, mixed up, confused, etcetera: 

 

your - you're - yore;  

 

to - too - two;  

 

bare - bear;  

 

soul - sole;

 

there - their - they're;

 

sore - soar

 

bore - boar - boor

 

When I see any of these words misused, it almost leaps off the page at me.  I realize that I'm oversensitive, but I can't help it.

The lose/loose one drives me nuts...

A few of my favorites that are often misused:

 

Nauseated = feeling sick

Nauseous  = making people sick

How often do you hear people say they "are nauseous". It may be true but I doubt that is what they mean.

 

Iterate = repeat

reiterate = re-repeat

Good list @Fourputt , the bare/bear one is a doozy!

Lol at people who have soar feet, especially if it's their souls, I don't know how they bare it.

Bingo.  The your's and there's are easy to flub, and like you said, they all sound the same, so for the most part ... no harm, no foul.  But a writer will loose ;-) me when they get lose :-P with their lose's and loose's, because, daggummit people, now you're messing with my head.  I have a question for any of you offenders out there.  I get that phonetically, "lose" makes the "ooooo" sound, so imagine that is what makes you want to add an extra O.  But what I don't get is how you think "loose" (as in, the opposite of tight, rhymes with moose) is spelled?  Do you assume they are spelled the same?  Or is looose spelled with 3 o's? ;)

Ummm, pretty sure you got that backwards.  The definition of nauseated is "to affect with nausea" and the definition os nauseous is "affectED with nausea."

 

Also, I can honestly say that I have never heard anybody use the word "iterate" in place of repeat.  I only hear that term (in stats, calc, or physics) in the form of "iteration."  I get what you're saying, (and in this sense, reiterate is a lot like saying irregardless, in that you are adding a prefix to a word that already means what you want it to mean) but, to iterate :whistle:, I've never heard anybody talk like this, or seen anybody write like this.  So hearing somebody say "reiterate," even when they are only saying something for the second time, is not going to offend me in the least. ;)

 

P.S.  Reading your post made me feel a little nauseous. :beer:

Yep...

 

Nauseous:

 

affected with nausea; inclined to vomit.

Correct.  The easy test for me is saying in my head "that person is nauseating."  You wouldn't say they were nauseousing.

Nope. I got it right. Although it is so commonly misused that some of the "new" dictionaries are offering the incorrect definition as an alternate.

You mean "yours and theres" plural not "your's and there's".

“Any handbook that tells you that nauseous cannot mean ‘nauseated’ is out of touch with the contemporary language."

 

You got it right in 1936..since most of us aren't 90, saying that you feel nauseous is correct.

irregardless, I'm sure the Kardashian sisters would agree with you. Maybe even Kato Kaelin.
