What’s your grammar pet peeve?

In an era where everyone who’s anyone publishes content to the internet, the English language is being abused like never before.

While it’s true that English is a remarkably adjustable tongue, there are some rules. We pride ourselves around here with our strict adherence to AP Style. Even that changes with alarming regularity.

So it led us to the next Blog Off topic. What grammar offense strikes you as the worst? Which abrogation of the rules that govern our language rub you raw? How many variations on our communal language can you tolerate before you say enough?

Let us know and be sure to weigh in on March 13 for the next installation of the Blog Off.

Publish on your blog post any time on Tuesday, March 13th and send a tweet to @letsblogoff (and fill out the form here if it is your first contribution) so we can pick it up and add you to the list of participating bloggers. Be sure to visit all the other bloggers to see how they tackled the theme. Retweets and comments are always appreciated. Remember to use the #LetsBlogOff hash tag in your Tweets. The editors reserve the right to accept or decline any submissions.

Please place the following badge on your post, just copy/paste the HTML code below:

<iframe id=lbo_frame src=http://letsblogoff.com/badge.html target=_blank width=200 height=60 frameborder=0 scrolling=no><p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p></iframe>

Be sure to add the table of bloggers to your post and it will build automatically for this #letsblogoff, copy/paste the JavaScript below at the end of your post. To be included on the table, you must display the badge on your blog post AND tweet to @letsblogoff AND publish between 12:00am and 9:00pm US-Eastern time. (New rule; we like sleep too)
