And typists thereof:

It’s segue. Ok? It’s not segway, unless you’re talking about the personal transporter. And I know it’s petty to point it out and blah blah colloquial and blah blah non-native English speaker and blah blah dogs can’t spell and why am I so uptight, but it’s bugging me. So could you please fix it? Segue.

That is all.

Or maybe not. It’s also per se, not per say. And if you’re in agreement with someone, it’s “Hear, hear.” not “Here, here.”

That is all.

For now.

Hear, Hear, from here, here!

And let me add: it’s ‘libel’ and not ‘liable’. The great Bill O’Reilly got that wrong http://www.foxnews.com/stor… five years ago. [I have to give FoxNews credit, they’ve left the column up for five years without correcting it.]

Wow, you hit two of my most common written pet peeves. ‘Here, here’ and ‘per say’ drive me right up a wall, especially when my boss does it in communications to clients.

You know what’s completely rampant? SNEAK PEAK. That makes me want to do violence.
