Default Expressions I find myself using...

...since I've been in Florida for 26 years now.

The latest one I noticed that has crept into usage:

"a whole nother thing..." or " a whole nother matter..."

It'* like taking the word "another" and inserting the word "whole" into it. It'* terribly wrong gramatically but then...it'*...

...a whole nother expression.


What bastardizations of the english language do you find yourself using?
