I think what he means is people who say "should of" instead of "should've" which is short for "should have." like someone might say " I should of bought that today," which doesn't make sense.

I hate villains who monologue. I recently finished the first draft of a novel, and I made sure that nobody could accuse my villains of monologuing and giving the characters time to get their shit together. Any time the heroes slightly let their guard down, one of them died.

Using "that" twice consecutively.

Over use of "did" outside of a question

People don't actually say it in conversation; it's always some media announcer or article writer. I cringe whenever I hear it because it always sounds offensively simple and awkward.

"know what i mean?"
No, that's why you're still talking
"See what I'm sayin?"
No dammit, that's literally impossible

stating "Now" before an explanation.

"now, it must be known that..." T_T

In my opinion It gives the impression that the author is pontificating upon their own thoughts, which does not belong in any professional work, unless of course it is a character in a story doing the pontificating.

this is detracting from the original thread but here's some things from r.eddit:

Jenna confronts her friend, Jen about her plans to assassinate an Islamic dignitary. Jen, however, has a darker and more extensive agenda.

>Jen, aside: "...Genocide"

Now, I mean really, guys, you all should of double checked your posts. Were they edited? Did you edit it correctly? Though you may have been through some rough times in a big way when your dad suddenly died, so so some of your distractedness can be understandable.

Or gar-rar-ge instead of garage. Where's that extra R coming from?

Anyway, my biggest linguistical pet peeve is when someone refers to a drawer as a draw. Example: "Please put your freshly laundered clothes in your draw." I also can't stand people who use is instead of are. Example: "Did you check to see if the clothes is dry?" Oddly enough, my MIL and SIL are guilty of doing both and I can't correct them because it's rude.

I also hated the phrase, "It is what it is". It's such a cop out phrase.

That one annoys me too. They should say "it isn't what it's not" instead.

The word painstakingly comes from the term "to take pains". Staking pain doesn't mean anything
Phineas Gendlemeck - Sat, 24 Feb 2018 04:13:08 EST ylxQEmun No.69906 Reply
I know but at least in my accent the two words together sound exactly the same. Pains taking. Pain staking. It's phonetically identical.
Alice Fuckingfuck - Thu, 01 Mar 2018 11:01:47 EST whiEkKmr No.69917 Reply
There is going to be a slight pause because two syllables. Also the s at the end of pains has more of a z sound to it than that at the beginning of staking. Also the whole point of this thread is that we are all right.

I'm happy to agree as I've said it over so many times it doesn't sound like a word any more so I have no idea what is or isn't right.

Interesting, I never really looked into what that term meant. I'm surprised that people say "painstaking" regularly enough that it's become a source of jimmie-rustling for you.
I get really fatigued by people throwing around words like "spiritual", "blessed", "holistic", and the like, particularly if used to denote one thing or action as "more spiritual" than another. It isn't these words themselves that irritate me but the smug attitude that often seems to surround them.
These conversations also seem to involve a lot of fancy language and references that one doubts the speaker understands to any meaningful degree.
Certainly I'm guilty of this myself, but more often in writing than in daily conversation (as this post is likely evidence of).
