10 Most Commonly Misused Words

Think you’re the best writer or speaker in the world? After viewing this infographic of the 10 most commonly misused words, you may want to think again.

Even worse, because we hear everyone else using a word a certain way, we tend to follow suit and do the same thing.

How about the word “ironic” or irony? I’m sure you hear it thrown around a lot when referring to a funny coincidence, but in actuality irony refers to something that is contrary to what you might expect.
