"Alright" is not a word; it's two: all right.

1. ginormous
It's not a word. Putting a made up word in the dictionary, does not make it a word. It's either gigantic or enormous. Pick one.

2. non-trivial
It's complex. I dislike hearing people use several words when one would suffice. Even worse is when they say, "it's not non-trivial" meaning it's simple or easy. <sigh>

3. People THAT versus people WHO
Who is for people, that is for things.

4. EXpresso (pronunciation of espresso)
It's pronounced as it's spelled - espresso. There is no X in it.

I'm annoyed when speakers use "simplistic" when they mean "simple" - apparently thinking that the terms mean the same thing. "Simplistic" is a negative word describing a complex issue being overly simplified. How do you make money in the stock market? "Buy low, sell high" is a simplistic answer. A diamond in a plain gold band should be described as a simple setting - not a "simplistic" one.

"axe" rather than "ask".

"got?" rather than "do you have?"

Disorien*TA*ted/Orien*TA*ted instead of Disoriented/Oriented

"let's touch base"

"the big kahuna"

"I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her"

"literally" used in situations where "figuratively" is meant. "She is literally dying to go shopping".

A favorite expression around my office is "I do not disagree".

Is that really necessary?

"Of Course"...(complete the sentence) seems to be the most misused and overused phrase of nearly all the local and national news, weather, sports, political and other personalities in the USA. Of course, the (sports team) won the 2001 championship. Of course, he/she graduated from (name the school). Skill, luck, choice and such are not in the same category as, "As a matter of course, the sun set at 8:27pm this evening"!
