Words I love

  • whilst
  • amidst (although half the time I spell it wrong)
  • per say (which I use too much and Ky says people shouldn't use it)
  • hence
  • albeit (3 words in one!)
I am well aware that each of these words makes me sound very hoity toity (which I had to spell phonetically b/c I have no idea how to spell it).

To that I say "Puh"

  1. Um...isn't it "per se"? Speaking of being bad at spelling...

  4. You're on the list. Unfortunately, all expenses are not paid. But don't worry, it's worth the trip.

  5. Thank you, Matt, for beating me to the punch. Even before I finished reading the post, I'd clicked the comments to mention the spelling error.
    I have a deep hatred of that word, even if it is Latin, because everyone misspells and misuses it.
    Everyone misuses "i.e." too, but I still love it, because no one misspells it.

  6. You both irritate the crap out of me. Relax. It was a spelling mistake. oooooh. And I rarely spell it anyways. (Look there's another one)

  7. Albeit. That has always been one of my favs.

    And don't worry about the misspelling. I always get in trouble BikeHunk because I mispronounce "often", by including the "t". He pronounces it "offen", and he irritates the hell out of me when he corrects me. Personally, I think either pronounciation is correct.

    Grrr...

  8. You're absolutely right; both are correct. Originally, the "t" in "soften" was pronounced, too. It changes back and forth every so often.
