Today was brought to you by the letter G, the number 4, and a giant pink elephant.Far be it for me to be a grammar queen but the misuse of "borrow" and "lend" is as grating to me as fingernails to a blackboard. As well as the misuse of "it's" and "its". I don't have perfect grammar myself but if most people could practise the basic English grammar skills, I would be a happy person.
When I listed "practise yoga" as one of my goals on 43things.com, I was very surprised to find out that I was the only person with this goal. Surely, there must be other people interested in yoga! So I figured that they would have listed it differently, for example, "learn yoga".
And then I came across this: "practice yoga". 182 people wanted to "practice yoga".
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't practise a verb, and practice a noun? For example, I want to go to yoga practice. Or I want to practise yoga.
I don't understand how 182 people did not notice the mistake, or worse, did not care!!
Although, I'm starting to doubt myself now. Maybe I'M the one who's wrong. After all, it's the power of the masses vs. me - hmm.. what does googlefight.com say??
(I win! Yea!)
