Grammar Pet Peeves: Readers' Picks Of The 7 Most Irritating Language Mistakes (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Today the University of Winchester celebrates English Language Day and we really love the idea. As novelists, poets, readers and bloggers, the HuffPost Books community takes pride in all things language. And what better time to rejoice in the written word than on English Language Day?

In honor of the event, we've revisited a topic that's, well, never gone away: Grammar Pet Peeves. We've seen "misused" quotation marks from Bethany Keeley, annoying apostrophe's from Arianna, and a whole slew of other mistakes on National Grammar Day, as well as on Punctuation Day.

Still, there's always more mischievous mistakes making way into our language and you -- HuffPost contributors and commenters -- have never been shy with sharing. So, we've brought you these entertaining Readers' Picks of the biggest grammar pet peeves.

Did we leave any out? Let us know!
