  1. I'll have to check out some of those links. Although I'm scared to find out how many phrases I've flopped!

    1. I suppose as long as the number decreases over time we're doing okay. ;-)

  2. Wow, so many links today! I'm totally guilty of a couple of those wrong phrases from the last link. I used to be a bad abuser of "towards," but luckily I got myself out of the habit of that one a few years ago...

    1. I use toward/towards and afterward/afterwards interchangeably all the time.

  4. I read that list of what one is saying wrong on fb. Not guilty. I also like the concise words, why use 10 when one will do.

    1. It would appear to me that one might choose to use a number of extraneous words when one has not yet decided upon the phraseology they prefer to use. LOL (That just comes too doggone naturally for me.)

  5. Great links as always, Jeff. "Towards" and "afterwards" slip by me all the time.
