What Are Your Language Pet Peeves?
Buzzfeed recently published a list of misused and made-up words. Jeff and Bill have talked about language pet peeves on the air in the past and a lot of their language pet peeves appeared on the list.
Some of our callers gave us their language pet peeves:
- Steve in Hightstown hates the phrase, “almost exactly.”
- Joe in Runner Meade is tired of the overuse of the words, “awesome, amazing and epic.”
- Bill in Old Bridge absolutely despises when people say “carmel” instead of “caramel”, even though the dictionary views “carmel” as a correct pronunciation.
- Katie on Route 18 hates when people use the word, “legit.”
- Denise calling from West Deptford, but originally from New York hates when people from Jersey use the term, “down the shore.”
- Lynn in Cherry Hill’s language pet peeve is the term, “where you at.”
