Or is it just the internet that's making it so evident?
  1. Try's instead of tries?
    My spell check won't even allow it!
  2. Crouch instead of crotch?
    Verb/noun, people!
  3. "Cuz I don't got non"
    I can't.
  4. Prolly
    It's probably.
  5. Maybe I notice because I'm a teacher. BUT IM A MUSIC TEACHER!!!! I don't even teach English!!! But it drives me crazy!!!!!
    Sorry. Rant over. These are just ones I've seen in the last hour. Feel free to add your own!
  6. Giphy downsized medium
  7. The ones that bother me are not as glaring: fewer vs. less, something in the same vein vs. something done in vain, bare your soul vs bear a weight. In an informal situation they don't bother me much, but if I read an article in a magazine or from a news source, I expect these words/phrases to be used correctly.

  8. "Should've" turns into "Should of" when people text. That's not what it stands for. "Should have" is the correct way to spell it.
    Should've, Could've, Would've
