There is a long list of common gaffes, but for some reason this one keeps popping up lately: "good riddens".

Like fingernails on a chalkboard...

I have a couple or more: "advise" for "advice." Another is the habit I'm sure taught in Elementary schools to pass standardized tests is to put an apostrophe in every word that ends in s. "Pea's, gun's, rod's".

Those damn apostrophes invariably show up where you don't want them..."It's" as a possessive and "Its" as a contraction of "it is".

OMG...any time, whether in initials or said fully. It's terrible when a woman says it outside a bedroom. It's worse when a man uses it in any context.

There, their and they're used incorrectly.

The lady that lives here grits her teeth when fewer and less are misused.

Most NZ'ers say 'proply'. I have mentioned to several that there is an 'er' in the word.
