"Can you borrow me money?"

"My mom was going to borrow me some money."

"...and after she borrowed me the money..."

Says my co-worker. Gah! LEND! LEND YOU DUMB... The word is lend. "Can you lend me some money?" How hard is that?

I also hear words like "Simular." I hate simular. I also hate it when a co-worker "axes" me a question. I just keep waiting for one of them to have some pasketti for lunch or to pace around their desk while holding their groin until I ask if they need to use the bathroom.

This surpasses all cultural and racial boundaries, and crosses the generation gaps. They all fall into the category of "Hit me with a stick until I stop talking."

Edumacation no's no bandrys.

They've been at it for years. This morning was just the final straw. Is it overreacting or having standards? Although I guess they have standards too. Just very low ones.

I wouldn't say it's overreacting to be bothered by it, that's human nature, but going on the forums and posting a thread on it is just a little bit of an overreaction, don't worry it's just venting.

It's more the vague support groups that form on here around a common annoyance or problem that I seek.

Overreacting? Oh hell no.

In fact, I say you've not yet reacted harshly enough.

being 'axed' questions as well as other common rapes of the english language which should have been readily addressed in the third grade are far too every-day in their use to warrant for passive recognition.

I too, CANT STAND hearing borrow used in that manner. My X used to say the same thing, all the time... It would rouse a rage so distinct that it can not be misrepresented as anything less than pure hate.

I mean, it is complete disregard for the words usage.

My girlfriend often replaces there with it, does with do and 'and them' with nam.  One would think that after 10 months of correcting her she would get the idea.

Undermind: "Her efforts to help are actually underminding our project."

Pecular: "How very strange." "Yes, it is quite pecular."

Ecspecially: "I like those colors, ecspecially that one."

There are some others, but they haven't been used in awhile so I'm having a hard time recalling them. I may try engaging the worst offenders in conversation today in the hopes they'll give me more ammo.

Misused words like the ones listed above are clear indications of going on context. The people are just repeating what they heard with out a ounce of a clue what they are actually saying, or, in their instance, mispronouncing.

I usually hear "Can you loan me some money?" Instead of lend which drives me nuts. A new one that really bothers me is everybody drops the "g" sound from "strength" especially on network TV. It's now "strenth". I blame Bush.

A few that I found on-line:

Supposed to: Do not omit the d. Suppose to is incorrect.

Used to: Same as above. Do not write use to.

Toward: There is no s at the end of the word.

Anyway: Also has no ending s. Anyways is nonstandard.

Couldn't care less: Be sure to make it negative. (Not I could care less.) Bugs me to no end. Very common.

I find that when I point these things out to people that they get angry and ignore me, continuing to get it wrong out of spite. They feel I'm coming across snobbish or superior or something. I'm not attacking them. It's meant to help.

I live in Arkansas, so I've accepted that everyone here, with the exception of me, are language rapists.
Yes, it is a little bit annoying, but if you try to correct them they just call you names and continue to be morons.

More than anything, I hate it when customers refer to me as "Mane," "Pimp," or "Dog" when addressing me at work and the use of the word "is" as a substitute for the word "at" or equivalent.

Nope.  "Learn ya" is a classic redneck-ism.
