My friends and I are self-professed grammar geeks. Upon hearing Alanis Morissette’s 90s hit “Ironic” on the radio, a worn out discussion usually breaks out: is she using the word “ironic” correctly? Yes, you can roll your eyes now. But, seriously, “It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife” is not really ironic, is it? (And I know that this discussion is more worn out than your favorite gym shorts…)
Today’s infographic supports my argument, but it also schools me against using “literally” as an emphatic “really,” and reminds me that politely chuckling does not a bemused person make. Some of the distinctions seem fairly close, as in the case of “plethora,” but a lot of these are good reminders. Whether this inforgraphic warms your heart or not, take a look to see if you are guilty of any of the offenses below. [Via]
