Women who refer to their own child as Baby when talking about it. You gave the child a name, use it. It always makes me feel like the Baby in question is a trophy or some kind of weird validation of their  womanhood or something, not a real person to them at all.

It's even worse in Spanish, where parents  often refer to their child directly as  "the boy" or "the girl." As in "I went to pick up the girl after school and we..." or "I have to buy the boy some shoes." No introduction, they just never use the child's name. To me it's like total denial of personhood for the child.

Along the same lines, I hate it when the folks in wiccan/pagan circles come up with their "magick" name and use y's instead of i's to make it more cutesy/mystical/creative.

Yeah, I've seen abuse of sight, site, and cite.

Y'all  >:D will be happy to know that when someone submits a recipe with "mylk" I change it to "nondairy milk."

That reminds me of this article and this other article and, to a slightly lesser extent, this article. (I love Cracked.com.)

I totally didn't know you (or any fellow regulars, i.e. non-admins) were still a mod here since VN took over the site. Shows what I know, don't it? ::)

I also had a major problem when I lived in KS with the adding extra r's into things, like "I'm gunna warsh my hands."  "Y'all wartch the game last night?" 

the misuse of "variable" drives me nuts, too.

Oh, tell me about it!  I used to live in "Warshington" state.  Get out.  Get out of my state right now if you're going to call it that.  My dad sometimes refers to "ideas," as "idears," and I want to slap him when that happens.  Maybe I have anger issues.

Don't even get me started on "Eye-talians."  Phew.

Or "Eye-rack" and "I ran" as countries.

Not the words themselves, but: when people use 'home' when they should say 'house.' Grrr. *smack*

For instance... You cannot BUY a home. You buy a house, and make it a home. You can improve the monetary value of a house, but not of a home - a home's 'value' is made by, and made for, those who live in it, and is nothing without them. Real estate agents and bankers and loan companies using the word 'home' to try and weave more emotion into a monetary transaction/situation really grinds my gears.
