We all want to use words in a way that makes us sound professional, so that they’ll perhaps have a positive impact on our long-term success. Yet caring too much about words can lead some of us to fall into an easy trap: becoming overly critical of the words other people use. If you’re a teacher, maybe this doesn’t apply to you; it’s your job to correct students’ grammar. But, some of us–even professional writers–need to turn it down a notch. (Bonus content:The Big Free Book of Success, my free e-book, which you can download here.) So, if you want to avoid becoming known as a hyper-corrective jerk, start accepting some of these minor errors in other people’s diction. Here 17 of the most obvious.
