Ok, this one's going to sound really petty, but given the influx of comments on my FB page today about it being the first day of a new season... spring doesn't require a capital letter, people!

Something that drives me absolutely batty - people misusing the phrase "wherefore art thou..." when they mean "where are you...".
"Wherefore" actually means "why".
In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet says "Wherefore art thou Romeo" to mean "why are you named Romeo". She is lamenting the fact that it is only by name that they are deemed enemies.
I swear the next time someone has lost their shoes and says "wherefore art thou shoes" I will be forced to deliver a theory of knowledge essay on why we know the things we put on our feet are called "shoes".

This reminds me of another one that annoys me... "from whence" (the "from" is superfluous). I die a little inside every time Elrond declares "It must be taken deep into Mordor and cast back into the fiery chasm from whence it came".

Rapt. The word is rapt. Not wrapped.

She and BIL have a good friend named 'Juan'.
I cannot tell you how funny it was the first time I heard her pronounce her take of 'walapeno'.
Also, my additions to this thread:
No, you are not 'aloud' to go outside. You may very well be allowed to, but I truly can't see how you could be 'aloud' out there.
I saw a girl on the weekend wearing a shirt that read; "You don't mean nothing to me". I wondered what I meant to her.
'Definitely' definitely doesn't have an 'a' in it.
'A lot' is a lot of words. Not just one.
Accommodation has two 'm's and two 'c's. This is because it is always nicer to travel with somebody, than on your own.
"I am taller then you". Then you ... what? Come on, don't leave me in suspense!
