It's bad enough when people, trying to sound sophisticated, merely come off as both arrogant and clueless when using the word myself. You give something to me, not to myself. I myself will accept what you give. Not so hard, see?
There are a few others that are my pet peeves. The first being dis. Dis- is a prefex meaning separate, or not. There are dozens of words that begin with this prefix--disrepair, dissatisfied, and disassemble, to name a few. When used as a word instead of a prefix, though, dis has come to mean disrespect. Why just that one word and not the others? I have an idea; if you don't want someone to demonstrate disrespect towards you (I cannot stand the use of disrespect as a verb), try speaking standard English as a start.
I heard a new "word" yesterday at my training at school, and this word has skyrocketed onto my list of unnecessary words. The speaker referred to a reduction in incidences of misconduct at school. Incidences? The word incidents functions just fine.
I lived for three years in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and new arrivals would talk about the need to acclimatize, or get used to the altitude and weather. Does someone really need to acclimatize, or do they need to acclimate?
And lastly, one of my "favorites". There is such a thing as "orientation", but that does not mean that the participants are being "orientated". No, they're being "oriented".
Do you have any other examples?
