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.

Take a look at the Buzzfeed list by clicking here.

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.”

What are some of your language pet peeves? Let us know in the comment section below.
