Pet Peeves

Pet Peeve #485: Using the word “creative” as a noun. E.g. “This new creative will help us really grow the business.” Creative is an adjective. Don’t force it into noun-hood unwillingly.

Pet Peeve #486: Pronouncing the word “Processes” as “Processese [Process-eeze].” It’s a plural, not a whole new language. I do not speak processese.

Great Pet Peeve, Jenn.

I suggest you to read the book called Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynn Truss.

Cheers,

Indeed, I have already. It enabled me to be even more anal about punctuation and grammar than I ever was before...

I'm not sure yet whether this is a good or bad thing.
