I like to type.
I like to use big words sparingly.
But most of all, I like to use the right word at the right time.
Which, if we're using logic here, means that I do not like to use the wrong word at the wrong time.
In fact, I loathe it.
People in Utah sometimes have a peculiar way of speaking.
That's all fine by me, but please please please for the love of Merriam-Webster do not translate this peculiar way of speaking into writing.
CORRECT: "Dresser for sale"
INCORRECT: "Dresser for sell"
Every time I see "sell" used for "sale" I cringe and cry little tears of anger.
When perusing the classifieds (as I do on a near daily basis), I come across this grammatical travesty time and time again. Is it snobbish of me to not want to buy something from someone who can't properly use "sale" in their ad?
Call me a snob.
But it drives me crazy.
