At a friend’s urging, we have added a new category: GrammarGrave for those grammar issues that may no longer be worth pressing.
We will, hesitantly, add to this category as our language evolves (whether we like it or not).
Please stay tuned, and, submit your candidates for burial.
Currently with the morticians:
“none” as singular (originated as a contraction for not one). See our earlier post (and comments) “Accepted through misuse”
“lay” vs. “lie” as to be in a horizontal or recumbent position, or to recline. See our earlier post: “Lie like a rug … ”
“like” vs. “such as” or “as though.” See our earlier post: “Like, totally … NOT”
