Ugh. Don't get me started. "Since the beginning of time" is another one. And has anyone else begun to notice a lot of "defiantly" in place of "definitely"? My guess is that Word's spellchecker suggests "defiantly" for certain misspelled versions of "definitely." Drives me nuts...and it has done so since the beginning of time, but never more than in today's society.gad(I know. Tom stole my thunder with his response to the Frost post, making this ramble sort of lame and uninspired. But I was primed, and I couldn't stop myself.)
I despise "Well, I think..." in research papers. Nobody cares what you think; you're a child!
Well, in today's society, it's not as if original though is required or rewarded.In my opinion.Students have written in a cliched manner since the beginning of time, and will defiantly continue to do so.
Everytime my daughter uses that phrase in one of her research papers, I make her remove it.I am against censorship as well, but, as an English Major, I am against suicide too.CP.
I'm on it. The job will be finished by noon tomorrow.Geez. Give me something HARD
*chuckle* Bless your heart, my mom is going through the same thing right now (grading finals). She always wonders if she can just get away with giving everyone a C+ and calling it a day ;o)
In today's society in which we live in now.Or, a personal favorite, "In this dane age." (Say it slowly. Think about it.)
Lu - My students write it this way: "In this day end age"...
Niiiice. And, heh, that one's inadvertently true, 'cause by the time I get done with their (&*^#$ing papers, it will BE the day of the end age for them.Clunky joke, but heartfelt nonetheless.
At the junior high level it is the misuse of the word of instead of have. They write "should of" as in "I should of listened" I should "of" taught them better, wait I mean I should have taught them better. Yeah it's getting to me too!
