GUEST,John Bauman BS: Mangling the English Language (132* d) RE: BS: Mangling the English Language 12 Sep 00


Two abuses that drive me to destracticability. "IRREGARDLESS" and "small little" as though small emphasizes the littleness as some adjectival adverb, which brings me to the ultimate abuse over which I may choose the life of a hermit. Latin/Greek derivative compound madethehellup words to make over the counter self-medication concoctions sound like real medicine "Developed in Laboratories by guys who talk like that" or, and more often, to make pseudointellectual guys like me sound like they know whatthehell they're blustering about.
