Oops, didn't mean to resurrect this long and comprehensive thread. I just thought GB in particular might find it amusing that a new book has that title.

Note to self: PMs are my friend.

Oh, this is FANTASTIC!!! I absolutely LOVE having Grammar Police around, since so many spoken and written phrases drive me nuts!

SuzyQ, Robo and others: what's the deal with "gone missing"? Even newscasters are reporting that a person has "gone missing", instead of "has been missing".

Am I just behind the grammatical times?

Wow, I saw this thread earlier and never thought it would go this long. But in the immortal words of Rodney King, "Get along, can't we all?" I live in the land of sentences ending in preposisions and find them very funny. Such as:

Do you want to go fishing erno ( or no) ?
She/ He was so hot, nowatimsayin (you know what I'm saying)?

One thing that drives me nuts, and maybe this should be in the venting thread, is the complete misuse of the word myself. I have co-workers that use it regularly because they think it makes them sound smart. I also hear it from time to time from talk show hosts. The bottom line is we can all talk like hicks but cooking we love to do.

See ya in another thread,
