Top Ten Most Annoying Grammar Mistakes

You'd think that people of the level of education that we have, with proof-read and grammatically refined writings being around every last child in the education system, respectable grammar would be a sixth sense to society as a whole. But no. Twelve years after high school, and people continue to misplace apostrophes and use similar sounding words with entirely different spellings interchangeably. May this list be a guide to these ill-taught and often ignorant individuals, who won't care, or even notice, if I end this sentence with an invalid conjunction then.

The Top Ten Most Annoying Grammar Mistakes

1 Misuse of "They're", "There" and "Their"

Well sorry but it gets confusing which is the right one to put in a sentence.

People are making mistakes like this in HONORS English courses. I'm giving up on them. - Cyri

Their are a lot of people who do this. They're mistakes are so stupid. There annoying. - PetSounds

Their are so many people who do this and they don't even realize there annoying me even though they're is no reason for it.

2 Misuse of "Your" and "You're"

How often do you see comments like "Your So Stupid! " and weep for the irony of its grammatical crime?!?! - PositronWildhawk

YOUR mind must be small if YOU'RE not able to get these right! And I thought "they're" "there" and "their" was bad!

I hate it when people write," your awesome and you're shirt is great! " - ToptenPizza

You're the worst at grammar - LootLlama

3 Misuse of Commas

English isn't a native language for me & I have almost never learnt how to use commas (I don't mean apostrophes, colons and semi-colons) in the school. So... - Fan_of_Good_Music

Commas, apostrophes, colons and semi-colons can completely change the meaning of a sentence; it's not rocket science. - PositronWildhawk

Well I have, never done, this in my, life. - gemcloben

That picture (or should I say comic) though - Solacress

4 Misuse of Apostrophes

Honestly, the top three items on this list are not usually made once you get to sixth grade. (Luckily, people in my area are relatively smart.) Lots of my classmates, however, make this mistake.

Also, I came to all the grammar lists because on my profile page I mentioned I was somewhat obsessed with making sure nobody makes grammatical mistakes. (You can call me a fool.) - MaxAurelius

Make sure to use apostrophes. Just look at this pair of sentence fragments:
Without apostrophe: Hell help me now.
With apostrophe: He'll help me now. - Turkeyasylum

Try living in the south... I’m a grammar Nazi, and I do. - Hermione_Granger220

6 Misuse of Plurals and Singular Terms

When referring to one item, you aren't referring to one items. Just as you are eating one apple, not one apples, or two apple. - PositronWildhawk

Two sheeps ate the grasses. - Puga

I have 2 word in my usernames - LootLlama

Win - LootLlama

The plane exploded.

8 Double Negative Terms

I've heard double negatives in songs a lot and they always driving me crazy, I was taught to not use double negatives. I'm a non-native English speaker. There is an exception when you say "It's not unusual" but that's kind of the only case. - LeaPurple2003

This don't mean nothing to you? So it must mean something. - PositronWildhawk

Ain't, ain't a word cause it ain't in the dictionary so I ain't gonna use it cause it ain't good grammar

I have won cookie. I one the contest yesterday. - cosmo

That only happens on roblox.

I one the race!

Is there anywon who makes this kind of mistakes? - Fan_of_Good_Music

13 No Periods

People who do this can you please stop it is a little annoying and makes it hard to read so please stop
(I wrote it with no punctuation on purpose.)

Yes! So many people don't use periods after sentences and it automatically makes the whole thing feel drab. I hate it! - keycha1n

Sometimes I forget, but not this time

I like it in poems - Alkadikce

14 Misuse of "Good" and "Well"

When my sister is bragging about her English grades she ALWAYS says "i'm doing good in English." - AnonymousChick

I would bring that ironic situation up with her English teacher. - PositronWildhawk

For example: "Are you doing good today? "

No, it's "Are you doing well today? "

This used to not bother me, but the more I've noticed it the more annoying its gotten... - keycha1n

People do this ALL THE TIME. I correct them and they get so mad... - Hermione_Granger220

I made a wish in the wishing good - LootLlama

Even Titles Don't Capitalize Every Letter, A, An, The, To, And, But, Or, For, Nor, Etc., You Do Not Capitalize

You're Wasting Time Doing Bad Grammar.

I hate when people do this

17 When Someone Says Things Like “Annoyingest” When It’s Supposed to Be “Most Annoying”

Heaven In Hiding is the amazingest song.

18 Questions Ending Without Question Marks

That doesn't really annoy me. A lot of people on here forget to put question marks at the end of a question anyways. - cosmo

I do this occasionally, but it's because I hit the wrong key, not because I'm unenlightened. - PetSounds

Do you think this is bad. - gemcloben

Yeah, what do you think.

Why do people use apostrophes in plurals again? - Turkeyasylum

Ugh. I hate when people do that. It’s stupid. - Hermione_Granger220

21 Misuse of "Less" and "Fewer"

This drives me absolutely CRAZY e.g. less people at the shop instead of fewer people at the shop... GR!

22 "A Whole 'nother"

Don't even get me started on this one... - truckturner

26 Beginning or Finishing a Sentence With a Conjunction

I like special affects in movies because otherwise it would be a green screen - LootLlama

I read this tweet; it said, "9/11 never happened it was probably all special AFFECTS"
Affects? Affect is a verb.

It’s really confusing, though... - Hermione_Granger220

31 Kinda instead of Kind of

I kinda like the word “kinda,” though.
I wouldn’t necessarily call it improper English. It’s just laziness. People shorten pretty much every single word. - Hermione_Granger220

32 Misuse of "Them" and "Those"

Ha! What kind of fool would make them kind of mistakes...? - Britgirl

I know, right? There are a lot of people who misuse them words. - Misfire

33 Misuse of "Its" and "It's"

This is annoying the hell out of me. I see it on some lists here. I see it everywhere... well, almost everywhere. Isn't correct English grammar taught in school these days? I agree with ALL the grammatical mistakes listed here. Even a very good friend of mine says "lay" instead of "lie".

This is really annoying. - Cyri

34 "Gonna" or "Going To" Instead of "Will"
35 "Lay" instead of "Lie"

This really does my head in. What is wrong with people who say "lay" instead of "lie"? Didn't they pay attention in class or weren't they taught the correct grammar? I'm well & truly a grammar nazi.

I want you to lay down. WRONG! I want you to lie down. CORRECT! He is laying down. WRONG! He is lying down. CORRECT!

36 Was Sat

"He was sat in the table." I can't stand this, I always have to correct it in my head if I read it somewhere. "He sat in the table." or "He was sitting in the table" either of these two, but not was sat, I feel like pulling my hair out because of this.
English isn't my first language but I'm studying it in University.

37 "Anywheres" or "Everywheres"

Like why? It's obviously not correct! There is no need to make it a plural.
