Hey All,

   I got idea of posting this thread from a recent post of our dear shopping friend @abhishek012 .

The discussion was about a word in english that was used wrongly but is to be still deemed correct if the word is used in same wrong manner commonly by most people. 

The word under discussion was stucked whose correct usage should be “Stuck”.  The word stucked is most commonly used by people to say their money is “stucked” in X app.

Lets share more such words if you are aware and let’s help each other better our vocabularies.

Tagging a few friends to get ball rolling.

Also punctuation plays important role. While pronouncing you really need to know where to pause or else whole meaning differ.
Check this hindi sentence. " रोको मत जाने दो. "
A simple comma or pause will make 2 different meaning’s.
" रोको, मत जाने दो. "
" रोको मत, जाने दो. "
So not only in english but also in hindi grammer is important. smile

I agree.
Incorrect usage of tense with ‘did’ is the most common – and also the most persistent – type of english grammar error that i have observed over the years!!

Q: “Are you there?”
A: “Yes, I am there.”

— Its should be “Yes, I am here”.

Not punctuation but ambiguity of sentence because word “उतारते”

Thanks for the link.

Word “उतारते” will be a predicate in this sentence and ambiguity is due to missing indirect object or complement on the sentence.. right ?
