I am a writer
I am a talker
I love written and verbal communication

When native English speaking people
mispronounce a common English word
The correct term is, 'Across'
But many say, 'Acrossed'
The correct term is, 'Ask'
But many say, 'Aks'
The correct term is, 'Drown'
But many say, 'Drownd'
The correct term is, 'Regardless'
But many say, 'Irregardless'
The correct terms are,'Et Cetera' & 'Espresso' & 'Especially'
But many say, "Excetera' & 'Expresso' & 'Expecially'
The correct term is, 'Interpret' & 'Orient'
But many say, 'Interpretate' & 'Orientate'
And one of my LEAST favorites
The correct term is, "Supposedly'
But SOOOO many say, 'Suposably'
'things that make me go hmmm'

^^ TRUTH ^^
