    Hi Noreen,

    The phrase “in regards to” is incorrect. It should be “with regard to”. A common misconception.

    “Just desserts” makes it seem like you’re getting a bad sundae or an old brownie…

    I mean if you’ve had food poisoning you know that sucks.

    Then there’s the good old “irregardless”. And the confusion that flammable and inflammable can cause, and the pretentious “Please be upstanding for the national anthem” gets me shaking my head every time. English is fun – but complicated!

    I find it amusing to see this “mistake” everywhere supposedly by JRR Tolkien. I would think if this were true then an editor somewhere made the change or it is acceptable. I give you TWERKING is now in the Oxford dictionary for pete’s sake. In the same vein, Jack Nicklaus’ (sorry s’s looks stupid and is for the retards I went to HS with and got it wrong on the English tests) golf course in Medina OH is called Muirfield Village. Translated it reads, “Villagefield Village.”
