Michelle, a new listener from KUOW in Seattle, is chiming in with some terms that really grind her gears.
Today I heard “Says You!” for the first time. I get very poor radio reception where I live.
I heard where people were asked what word or phrase improperly pronounced or grammatically annoyed them the most.
For me, the word “extinct” is misused so often it drives me crazy. The term “going extinct” or “went extinct” is proper. But so often, you hear “becoming extinct.” Well, that is just wrong. It’s almost as bad as another, where something was “found to be missing.” How can something be found if it’s missing?
Love ’em, Michelle! But don’t let poor reception stop you from listening. Catch up on new and classic episodes of Says You! anytime on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and anywhere else podcasts are found!
