One of my many pet peeves with the usage of the English language
Not even once. The mischievous side of me wants to use it in a paper that I write for a class in the fall semester, specifically for the opportunity to tell the professor to suck it and make them increase my grade (even if the misspelling was not part of the formula that lowered the grade in the first place). Pretty brilliant, eh?

Anyway, are there any other words in the English language that are used incorrectly nearly 100% of the time? This topic interests me a lot, and since this thread wasn't meant to actually promote discussion, I don't feel too badly about highjacking it.

Redundant people mess up a lot and of course irony~

I will think about it as I am going to bed, an English person would be good to ask though because they always complain about our usage of the english language~

I can't see how Ortiz is "cherry-picking" anything here. Sure Floyd's older, and coming off a long layoff, but if you know anything about Floyd, you know, come fight fight, he's gonna' be the toughest opponent Ortiz has faced in his career, by a WIDE MARGIN.

My hat's off to Ortiz for taking such a tough fight at WW.

I always thought that redundant was a synonym for repetitive, but since you listed it, and that is the way everyone uses it, that's obviously not correct. If you happen to drop by this thread and wouldn't mind explaining that one as well, I'd be appreciative.

And yes, irony is misused more often than it is used correctly probably, and there really is no excuse, as it is common knowledge that it is misused a lot. I wonder how much Alanis Morrissette had to do with the trend to call things that are devoid of irony "ironic."

Also, it's a rarity anymore that I come to BoxingScene and find myself treated to good conversation like I used to when I joined in 2007 when things were better (or maybe I just thought they were better because I was an ignorant n00b, and would likely be classified as a reasonable ***** by the current member's of the board). Even more rare is finding myself engaged in good conversation that is about something other than boxing. I really do want to thank you for this little discussion about the incorrect deployment of words in the English language. I enjoyed it a lot.
