I've started noticing lately how much it really bothers me when people say a phrase like "It was real good" or "That movie was real scary." This just sounds so incorrect to me but it seems like I'm the only person who doesn't say this. Instead I say "really good" or "really scary".

I'm just wondering if I'm the only person that's bothered by this and just every other case where people use adjectives as adverbs.

It's incorrect. I avoid it. It tends to really annoy me too. But I don't really correct people with it. If that's what you consider correct and you aren't writing a paper, whatever.

It annoys me intensely, and I don't think I've ever used it unless I was mocking someone. The one that really infuriates me, though, is using "proper" instead of "very/really". I don't think you have that in the States, though?

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

No, people don't say that here but a lot of old people in the south say things like
"It's right busy in this store" using right instead of very. I don't get it but whatever haha

The lake was silent for some time. Finally it said:
"I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful. I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks, I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected."

Well done. I appreciate your effort in attaching my face to my words. Makes it much more personal.

When I go hunting with my grandpa, we visit his friend Johnny Ray and he always ends his sentences with "I am" or "it is", like "it's hot out here, it is", or, "I was hungry, I was". I'd start doing it to for like a week.


It has little to do with your topic but it reminded me of that for some reason.

It's a Southern thing. I do it occasionally, too. It doesn't really bother me unless you do it in writing.

That's because you live in georgia, in the south that's what people say. No one says "real good" here. You would be called a hick if you said that. We all say "really good"

People who are bothered by petty little things bother me.


ha ha ha This. Everyday theres somebody on here complaining about little everyday things that don't matter. Like have you ever noticed that some people like to use 2 straws. Why do they do that? One works just fine.

That is annoying I agree. I'm not that prudish when it comes to english, even I don't even use correct grammar half the time, but that phrase gets old.
