Don't you mean somebody's won? or maybe somebodies won? Or maybe some buddy won? :-)
...so maybe you could assume people aren't native english speakers to sooth yourself?
Sooth: Noun meaning truth (archaic)
Soothe: Verb (with object) meaning gently calm (a person or their feelings)
So, sheepstache, I am confused. Was that your point? Were you just being funny? Or did you not take time to read your own comment? I just can't tell.
Yay, somebody won!
Oh good! I was going to announce that first prize was a pun joke, second prize was two pun jokes, but I didn't see how anyone could get second prize but now you have.</run-on sentence>
Okay getting back to grammar: it irks me when I see a mixing up of the subject & direct object forms. It's 'between you an ME' goddammit! Just because 'I' sounds fancy doesn't make it grammatically correct when referring to one's self as a direct object. Hint: use me. No, no no, don't use ME, use the word 'me'. Shit, see? This is how I get myself into trouble.
Yes! And people who indiscriminately use 'whom' because they're trying to sound formal.
Or pronouncing the plural of "premise" as "premiseez." It's not a greek ending. Don't say it like a greek ending.
Not a grammar thing, but using more formal language than you need to in a way that doesn't make sense.
Couple businesses I work with have started beginning all their emails with, "Please be advised." Like, even when I asked a simple question and they're answering it. "Hey, could you please let me know when the fire drill is?" "Please be advised the fire drill is at 10am." Well shit, hoss, thanks, consider me advised.
A piece of equipment goes missing. "Can someone please confirm what happened to [equipment]?" No, because nobody else has proposed an idea that could be confirmed. You can just say, "Does anyone know what happened to to [equipment]?" Professional does not equal stilted.
