As a professional writer, I'm constantly appalled at the way people brutalize plain old English. Between emails and text messages, written communication is more important now than it's been in ages; yet people are shockingly terrible at basic spelling and grammar. That's my pet peeve.SoSuSamhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09890365691156994507noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-27044110.post-32658786757659984002016-04-05T10:41:53.065-04:002016-04-05T10:41:53.065-04:00The general lack of math/science acumen is maddeni...The general lack of math/science acumen is maddening. That is not to say that the people who misuse the one/two dimension phrases of unintelligent, but you are referring to very, very basic concepts not advanced trigonometry. It is a little (a lot) scary.

You are so right. People are often using phrases and expressions they don't fully understand but to do so in ads and books indicates complete superficiality.

Of course we could add time to the mix as a fourth dimension, but then flat make-up that lasts a long time would be three-dimensional...<br /><br />Reminds me of a mathematician friend who bought a tiny, but very old, house.

My personal pet hate is the expression "reach a crescendo", as a crescendo is a gradual increase (the opposite is decrescendo) but it's widespread in non-musical contexts to use it to mean "reach a very loud state". But you cannot “reach” a crescendo" as little as you can have one dimensional face.Asalihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12522693265217204063noreply@blogger.com
