The most illiterate phrases in our speech
If we compare the mistakes that we make in our speech and hear from others with frightening nightmares, then Halloween is a holiday that is always with us ... Let us arrange a witch-hunt: from what illiterate phrases and expressions it is high time to get rid of?
Better / better option
The adjective "best" means the maximum expression of any quality, attribute. Therefore, any increase to it is superfluous: the expression "the best" is permissible in casual communication, but from the point of view of a strict language norm is incorrect. And "better" is a mistake in the formation of the comparative degree of the adjective, it should not be allowed either in business or in a friendly conversation.
"To be in sports", "to be positive", "to be on style" - these expressions are clumsy, but impudent: from the jargon of sleeping areas they quickly leaked into blogs, social networks, advertising and, of course, into live communication. Something similar happened to high fashion, when with the light hand of the designer Vetements Demna Gvasalia podium attacked sweatshirts and pants with stripes in the taste of "real boys."Ask yourself, do you really like the phrase “I'm on a sport” more than “I have a workout”?
“Let's solve logical problems,” the clever nephew asks you. "Come on," you say. In all other cases, "we decide" sounds rude, especially from the mouth of the girl, as if she had reviewed all the domestic series about gangsters.
“Borrow me” means “ask me for someone else’s debt”. That is, the phrase must either be added: “Borrow money from your parents, please,” or you can change it if you want to borrow from the person you are contacting: “Lend me the money.”
Who is last?
For some reason, it is believed that the “last” sounds more offensive than the “extreme”, although in fact everything is the opposite: remember the indignant expression “Found the extreme”? The erroneous replacement of one word by another occurs, firstly, under the influence of slang of the representatives of dangerous professions (pilots, divers, etc., with their “extreme departure”, “extreme exit to the scene”). And secondly, because one of the meanings of the word “last” is “very bad” (“He acted as the last scoundrel”). It is difficult for someone who takes a line, to call another person “extreme” (guilty without guilt), or the last (worst).And he forgets that sometimes the “last” is just one who closes a sequence, without any offensive overtones.
I have nothing to wear
Classics of the genre, when the verbs are not distinguished by meaning. We memorize: put someone on, put on ourselves.
Well, yes / yes / something like this
“As if” is an insertion-parasite in our speech, and it is justly annoying to many, since it makes no sense. Give words a tinge of insecurity? The particle “well” has already coped with this perfectly.
I invite you to birthday / birthday
Day - what? - Birth. Just like that. It is sad to hear and read pearls like “Come to my birthday” and “my birthday” ...
Have you eaten?
The phrase is correct if you ask a three year old child. To an adult man this is not about the person, and from the mouth of a woman “I ate” sounds like chesting, mannered. On Gramote.ru, this verb, in misuse, is given as an example of a philistine speech.
