Top Ten Most Incorrectly Used Words

The Top Ten

1 Literally

I need to stop using this word so often. Like, literally, what's wrong with me. - Catacorn

"I literally died.”
What? ‘Literally’? - Misfire

2 And

People use it a lot to make run on sentences. - Oliveleaf

Actually "and" doesn't cause many run on sentences, its only if you have two independent clauses that aren't linked. In many cases, if you add an "and" to a run on sentence (because it's a fanboi), you can make it gramatically correct.

But don't be the jerk that points that out, like I'm doing right now. - keycha1n

3 Irony

Some things people call “ironic” are actually just unfortunate events or coincidences. But, I understand. It can be hard to figure out which is actually irony. I get confused with it at times. - Misfire

Yes, I see this all the time. People confuse a 'coincidence' with 'irony'. Irony is when something happens that is the opposite of what you'd expect.

4 Technically
5 Grammar
6 Basically
7 Easy
8 Overrated

People use it when they hate something. Overrated means that gets too much praise. Besides, something overrated can still be good. - Userguy44
