One of my biggest pet peeve's is the incorrect apostrophe. As in, "I like the Cincinnati Red's." Or, "Austin Kearn's played for the Louisville Bat's."
I also don't like when people end a statement with an inappropriate question mark? As in, "I hope this answers your question?" Or, "I heard you bought a new car?"
I remember when I was in my third year at OU and I was taking a 400-level English class. The instructor spent an entire class period blasting 75% of the students who were still confusing the three forms of the words "there, their and they're", and the words "to, too, and two" they were also using run on sentences the instructor could'nt believe that juniors and seniors at college would make these mistakes. As well as sentence fragment's.
