Divas Recommend: The English Words And Phrases That Folks Use Incorrectly, by Doug Eikerman

Today, we have a double hitter. We Divas are recommending two articles by Doug Eikermann over at Mr. Eikermann is a blogger and author of fiction and non-fiction. His website covers a variety of issues and we hope you’ll check it out.

He has created two fine lists of commonly seen errors that all writers should know about, and some of my major pet peeves are on that list, let me tell you! 🙂

So check it out and I hope you find them helpful.

    Both good articles – but he missed my absolute favourite: could should or would OF instead of could, should or would HAVE.
    And Aussie youngsters have turned the word ‘versus’ (meaning against, as you know) into a verb…. the Redsox versed the Giants last week. Our team is versing the Waratahs next week.
    Versing and YOUS as the plural of YOU will turn up in the Macquarie Dictionary in the not too distant future! Sad but true.
