I am amazed how many people on Craigslist need to SALE their DINNING tables! Really? Sale is not a verb!!! And my second graders learned the rules about long vowels and short vowels. Drives me totally crazy!!!

My biggest one lately is fiance and fiancee. I understand that getting the accent mark over the e is difficult, but how hard is it to remember that 2 e’s = female, 1 e = male?

Your, you’re, their, there, they’re would be my top pet peeves as well. Choose vs. chose, loose vs. lose, to vs. too are also big for me. I might not have perfect spelling or grammar, but I notice these the most. Grammar geeks unite!

to & too

 

to – expresses motion or direction.  I’m going to the mall. 

too- in addition, also – as in I’m spending too much time on WB and me too.

@Jacqui90:  Even from an American English POV, fiancee looks more feminine than fiance. I don’t get how people don’t see it. Maybe it’s just me. I made sure FH knew the difference, so he wouldn’t go posting on FB about his fiance.

Is anyone else amused that a post complaining about spelling doesn’t use a single capital letter other than “I” and “OWNERSHIP?”

OP, I’m with you. I teach college and am always amazed that students still don’t know the difference. The internet is one thing, though I am a huge proponent of decent grammar, spelling, and punctuation in all forums, but a term paper is another.
