If you're talking about colors - it's palette.

A pallet is those wood things they stack products on in warehouses.

That's all.

oh....definitely!

Not definately. not FINA people, FINITE.

and while we are at it..the correct expression is that you *couldn't* care less.

Because if you could..then what's the point?

Because you CAN have your cake and eat it (which is what a lot of people say and that is not how it works).

Literally means not figuratively. So if you are using a figure of speech, don't say literally.

Just wanted to add that it's PER SE!! Not per say!!

ETA, "A Lot" is two words, not one. Because you can say "a whole lot" and you also don't say "ABunch" or "ACouple"

I wish people would stop using loose for lose.

You don't loose something (like weight). Try losing an o and you'll get it right. If you lose something, it's lost. Same number of o's!

I have noticed on a lot of threads people typing ect. instead of etc. Maybe it is just a typo, but i think not as it is typed that way in half the threads where it is used.

Ok, as long as we're adding stuff - I've seen "compliment" used for pea praise on projects when the intended word is "complement."

Complement, as something that completes, coordinates or makes perfect vs. a compliment which is an expression of praise.

I love all of these so much that I'll bite.
Less/Fewer.

If you can count the items, it's fewer.
If it's something that isn't individual items, like a percentage or time, for example, it's less.

You can't have less wood veneer embellishments than your friend. You can have fewer wood veneer embellishments than your friend.
(You can use less mist though. But you have fewer bottles of mist. Also: your friend is apparently a pretty serious scrapbook shopper, from the sound of this.)

(Drives me absolutely crazy at every store than has a '5 items or less' queue. Is it just for people who have fractions of items?)

Advise/advice...when you want someone to give you their opinion on what you should do/buy/etc. you are asking for advice. When someone gives you that advice, they are advising you.

Examples:
"I need advice on which die cut machine to purchase."
"I would advise you to choose the Silhouette Cameo over the Cricut."

Even though this one is obvious it's extremely common to see it used incorrectly and it drives me nuts!
"your" is not the same as "you're" please understand the difference. I'm sure it's just lazy typing-like using text speak but they are not interchangeable!

Viola said, "I was conversating with friends when I seen you're color pallet has less colors than theres."

I said, "Viola, you're mistaken. Her color palette has fewer colors than theirs."

Viola responded, "That's what I said."

If you lost weight your clothes would be loose. LOL!

It's specific, not Pacific, unless we are talking about the ocean. A pastor I knew used to give messages that said the Pacific point was..... I would always get distracted, and start thinking about the ocean.

I have a very hard time saying "specific." I have practiced and practiced and it rarely comes out right. It's a tongue twister for me and I avoid saying it.

What about their, they're and there? These get mixed up all the time and it drives me crazy. I also have to agree with irregardless and conversate. Wouldn't irregardless be a double negative? Conversate is not a word, converse is.

My turn....

Accept is a verb and means 'to receive or to admit as true'.

Except is a preposition (meaning 'excluding') or a conjunction (meaning 'other than').

They all accepted the invitation, except for Bill.

Another one: if you scrapbook, you're a scrapbooker or a scraPPer not a scraper. A scraper is a tool you use to scrape things off something - like gunk off your shoe.

Misspelling confidence as confidance.

Also when people say ValenTIMES, instead of ValenTINES. That sets my teeth on edge. I had a principal who pronounced it as ValenTIMES. Ugh

Which reminds me of principal and principle....

I used to go by frugal scrapper. One day my hubby got me a freebie (it was either a pen or letter opener - can't remember) where you could have your name engraved on it. The man can't spell (or he just happened to mess up.) It says Frugal Scraper.

Here's a timely one (no pun intended): It's Daylight Saving Time, not Savings Time.

But the one I hear constantly is people using "I" when "me" would be correct, as if they think "I" is always more proper. Not when it's the object of a preposition--it's "between you and me," not "between you and I."

I love this thread! Most of mine have already been listed, but another is when people write "threw" instead of "through". The head of our HR department typed a letter that was attached to *everyone's* paycheck that had that mistake.

The other one that people seem to say because it "sounds more proper" is using "one another" when "each other" is correct. "One another" refers to three or more people (that's the easy way to remember the rule--the word "one" has 3 letters!), while "each other" is two people. So, my sister & I love each other, but my brothers & I sometimes irritate one another. (Made up example, as I don't have any brothers.)

Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now & go join PolarGreen for some wine.

I had to stop and think what a preposition is. (ok, I'm sure that sentence is grammatically incorrect. ) It's probably supposed to be 'what is a preposition' but that doesn't sound right.

There are many misspellings and grammatical errors these days-a big reason because of texting I am sure; autocorrect and the like.
Here's one:
And I "*shudder" to think that I recently saw a post where one used "shutter" in this context. Eep.

This is more of a funny story rather than a PSA. I teach second grade and about five years ago I had a student that spelled cum instead of come. She misspelled the word ALL YEAR LONG. Little did she know that some of her sentences were rather obscene

I get annoyed too sometimes by things that are obviously wrong to me. But there are some things that are different depending on your location... to me colour should have a 'u' in it but I'm sure you all want me to say color.

Makes no difference to me.

But here's an interesting thing because your post made me think of how you other English-speaking peeps use 'cheque'...
We use checks, unless it's those traveler ones. Then they're traveler cheques.
