Words that Don’t Exist Yet Used Too Often

Bad grammar spreads like a wild fire when there's nobody to stop it soon enough.

You’re probably guilty of these crimes against  the English language. There are several words which you use but they don’t even exist. You use them so often that you’ve made them to appear normal. Bad grammar spreads like a wild fire when there’s nobody to stop it soon enough.

You’ve probably heard some people mutilate English words but you just cringed and left them to their own devices. Unlike you, we won’t let this just slide anymore. People need to know the truth so they stop embarrassing themselves while trying to sound cool.

Are you guilty of any of these literary  atrocities?

Irregardless: First off, there’s no such word. Most people who use this ‘word’ assume it can be used in the place of “regardless.” Every time you use it, a grammar Nazi suffers a rage fit.

Grammer: It’s grammar, not grammer! If you can’t even spell grammar, what else would you probably know about good grammar?

Alot, alittle: Stop it already. People who write a lot  or a little as one word are simply  too lazy to hit the space bar. If you aren’t, don’t do it again.

Supposably: No. It’s supposedly. And no, it’s not  cool at all, not  even when you’re saying it among people who can’t speak English. Grammar Nazis will find out and you will be shamed.

I could care less: It’s actually supposed to be ” I couldn’t care less” which means that you don’t care at all. Not even a little. When you say “I could care less” you’re simply saying that you care, which is not what people mean to say when they use that phrase.

We have a bonus “bad word,” which is often misused and more often overused. Your guess is  correct! It’s none other than the word ” literally.” If I had a dollar for every time you wrongly used that word , I’d probably be one of the most moneyed grammar Nazis you’ll ever meet.

Share this article with that friend who is obsessed with all the wrong words. When you don’t want to suffer bad grammar embarrassments, hire a copywriter to write or at least proofread your copy before you let it go live.

Just what makes an article perfect? Article writing still remains one of the easiest forms of writing, owing to the fact it has less rules compared to other categories of writing. There are a few secrets to producing topnotch pieces , that when applied guarantee a definite win.

Study Your Audience and Identify Their Needs
This rule applies in any form of writing under the sun. You must know to whom you are writing so that your language and vocabulary matches their preference. Find out what your target reader wants and work towards giving them just that. Is that too difficult?

What is the Purpose of the Article?
Are you writing to educate, warn,notify or entertain? The answer to that question determines the tone you apply in article writing. This also often determines the length and structure of the article. Whether to use a formal or informal structure is to a large extent determined by the purpose of the piece.

Read and Research
A writer who does not read has no business writing. A certain smart head once said that and it is still true. You must never stop reading if you intend to score big in article writing, whether you’re writing for yourself or freelancing. Reading helps you to stay abreast with trends in the writing industry.
It is also through reading that you discover useful information about the subject you are writing about.

I said read, not ‘lift’ ideas from another writer’s work onto yours. You know that is plagiarism, right? Be original, be unique, stand out and the result will be outstanding.
That is all that article writing is about. Always finding a way to say the same thing differently.
