leeneia BS: Language Pet Peeves (1866* d) RE: BS: Language Pet Peeves 19 Aug 21

No, they are like mice. You see them out of the corner of you eye when you are doing something else, and they're irritating. In the case of language, the "something else" is reading or talking.

If I haven't said it already, a peeve of mine is "pushback." As in
"Rep. Max Gaetz pushes back on sex charges." Meaning what?
