Niggling words

My pet peeves are ‘impactful’ (which isn’t a word) and improper use of the word ‘grow’ (We’re going to grow the business.)

I’m including a link to a Copyblogger’s 27 Words. It’s a fun read.

Have a good day and make an impact!

  1. “Myself” is a word that is my pet peeve when misused, as in:

    Chris and myself are old friends from elementary school.

    People seem to think that it is poor grammar to use the word “me” when talking about themselves. Now that I’ve said that, please don’t mock any grammatical errors you might find in this paragraph!
