Two words that irritate me:
1. Awesome...some people apparently know no other word to express their feelings of being overwhelmed by something.
2. More importantly...should be “more important”. Importantly is apparently used to make one feel more important.
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:
Importantly \Im*por"tant*ly\, adv. In an important manner. [1913 Webster]From WordNet (r) 2.0:
importantly adv 1: in an important way or to an important degree; "more importantly, Weber held that the manifold meaning attached to the event by the social scientist could alter his definition of the concrete event itself" [syn: significantly] 2: in an important way; "for centuries jellies have figured importantly among English desserts, particularly upon festive occasion"
I hate it when people end a sentence with a preposition.
Where is it at?
