5 Phrases Everyone Gets Wrong All The Time

English can be tricky, knowing that the sentence “All the faith he had had had had no effect on his life,” makes perfect sense. However we don’t always get it right. According to Business Insider, here’s 5 phrases that we all get wrong:

1.  “For all intensive purposes.”  It’s really “for all INTENTS and purposes.”  The other way is like saying, “for all these very thorough purposes.”  Which doesn’t make sense.

2.  “Nip it in the butt.”  The correct phrase is “nip it in the BUD,” like a flower bud.  The other way makes it sound like you want to BITE someone’s butt.

3.  “One in the same.”  If you say it like that, it doesn’t make sense.  The real phrase is, “one AND the same,” which means two things are alike.

4.  “Case and point.”  The correct way to say it is, “case IN point.” It’s like saying, “Here’s an example of the point I’m trying to make.”

5.  “I could care less.”  If you say it like that, you’re really saying you DO care about something.  The correct phrase is, “I COULDN’T care less.”
