"And certainly not defiantly."

That's the clincher. That's what drove me to Google "Definitely defiantly". It's comforting to know that there are people out there that share the same roll-face-on-keyboard reaction everytime they read "I defiantly..."

Many moons ago, I worked as a forum moderator when TSN/INN existed. The woman who managed all the tournaments hired me to run Spades tournaments and post content for said tournaments... one of her reasons for my hire: I could definitely spell "definitely". [Image Can Not Be Found]

Very helpful - I always had trouble with definitely, until I started thinking of it as de-finite-ly... as though the word were trying to hide an extra meaning in it, due to having 'finite' in there.  Like it was 'anti-finite-ly'.  I still haven't figured out the hidden meaning though... anti-finite = infinite, right?

"I still haven't figured out the hidden meaning though… anti-finite = infinite, right?"

Perhaps not. Something can be unbounded but finite. The surface of the Earth is finite (countable in real numbers) but travel over it is unbounded. It's possible to move in a straight line forever. I won't hazard more examples as what little I understood of the definitions and math was long ago replaced by the names of television shows and heck if I know if something can be infinite but bounded.

Or, anti-finite means a TV character really pissed at the three walls. [Image Can Not Be Found]

I saw "moblie" once, and liked it so much I now call mine a "moblie".

On road trips, my friends and I turn the rampant misuses of apostrophes (and quote marks) into a game. It's wildly entertaining until you realize how badly people are butchering English grammar... hell, they're butchering English!

The one that still makes us giggle: My friends were living in Alabama (don't get me started [Image Can Not Be Found]) We'd stopped at a gas station for gasoline. Said gas station also sold fried chicken and various other fried foods (that alone was scary to me). After going inside to pay for the gas, JB got in the car and told us that the condiments available for the food served were mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise and "cheese". Yes, the "cheese" was in quotes. We all got a fit of the giggles trying to figure out just exactly what they meant by "cheese."

I still get the shakes from having seen "FRESH" LOBSTER as an enticement. The worst was--I am not making this up--"NEW" "CAR" "CHEAP" RATE on a sign at a dealership.

Best I can translate, that offers uxurious loans for used mopeds.

 

 

 

 

I know what uxurious means. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Well, I have to admit that I've fallen vicitm to using "alot".  Yes, I know it is not a word but maybe it should be one?  Words do get added to dicitonaries and perhaps this is a poor one to add, but I see it all the time and do it myself even though I know I should not. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Auditrix I fall prey to 'aswell' a lot as well 😉

"...condiments available for the food served were mustard, ketchup,
mayonnaise and "cheese". Yes, the "cheese" was in quotes. We all got a
fit of the giggles trying to figure out just exactly what they meant by
"cheese.""

Oh cripes, that's funny. Dangerous use of quotation marks there!
