Grammar Gaffs–A Guest Post by Susan Szydlowski-Gentry

guestbloggerMany people use the terms, would of, could of and should of, which have been derived from the contractions, would’ve, could’ve and should’ve. What they should be writing is, would have, could have and should have.

Another misuse is the phrase, “I could care less.” How much less could you care of that certain situation? Personally, I couldn’t care less.

And finally, can’t is the contraction for the words can and not, which, by the way, should never be two words when side by side. I cannot understand why this is so difficult to understand.

Okay, I’m done venting now.
