I know this is an old thread, but I just had to post the article below.  I really expect better from a BIG 10 Team then to have a typo in the school name on a jersey.

The “Indinia” Hoosiers got off to a brutal start on Saturday afternoon in Iowa City.

But is it worse than someone writing "then" instead of "than" in a thread about spelling and grammatical errors?

In the race of life, always back self-interest. At least you know it's trying.

Can I plead the 5th and not answer?

You can say you went to Chicago public schools like @ChetlovesMer!

OMG, was my error that bad?

I think I would rather just admit my guilt and ask for mercy from the grammar police before claiming the Chicago School defense.

I’ve been to Indiana many times. Indinia sounds better.

Spot the wrong sentence: Can she get one for you and I? You and me are going on vacation.

Fifty years from now, many of these will be accepted as standard English.  And they forgot “could of” instead of “could have.”

 I’m still trying to get used to changes in meanings. I’ve heard/read “infamous” and “notorious” referring to positive traits several times in recent months.

Don’t even get me started on pronunciation. :yucky:

Well the article is discussing proper use of proper words, phrases and when to use each one. ‘Could of’ is never proper.

Does anyone else get annoyed at the incorrect usage and/or over usage of "literally"? Why does someone think they need to tell you "I literally just arrived." when you saw them come in the door? It makes me want to "figuratively" jump off a bridge.

It is overused quite a bit.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Yes, I do.

But linguists are already telling us that the meaning has changed, and that we old codgers need to just accept it, because "very" and "really" went through this same change years ago--and now it's litterally's turn.  The definition now includes "used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true."
