Re: Phrases that drive you up the wall

Language is a living thing. It changes with time, with evolving society, and contact with people who use different languages and forms of grammar.

For example what were once taught as strict rules of grammar such as not to start a sentence with a conjunction, a thing that I would never have done, are now perfectly acceptable and in some cases even in formal writing.

Get ma drift bro?

Use of 'your' instead of 'you're'.

I started a collection of these and similar gaffes. More for amusement than anything else. I lost it when my old computer died but I was prompted to start a new one by this.

Carry a bag for carrier bag.
A gem.
