What is with this new fad of saying loose instead of lose.

‘Hey guys, I’m trying to loose weight’

‘Loose the attitude and stop trolling’

Is this an American thing or am I just a grumpy bastard?[/quote]

They really are not aware that it is incorrect. It has driven me crazy for years now. It had already been driving me crazy for years when I made the post I linked to above.

Na, computers have become so easy to work with that even the bottom of the barrel can operate them.

I blame Apple.

I think the writing can be corrected once in the adult work force.

My big bitch is the inability to verbally communicate, like talking to fucking Zombies

Just change lose’s pronunciation and I’m sure that people won’t make the same writing mistake over and over again.

way to ruin the joke… of course that may change if they start making cholesterol testing the norm for 9 yr olds :wink: as some want.

I think people often get stuck between the way the word sounds and its spelling. Lose turns into ‘Loose’ because of how the ‘o’ sounds phonetically.

I’ve never heard ‘loose’ used in that context conversationally, so they must believe they are saying ‘lose’.

Used in a libelous sentence:
TheBird should be extra careful as to not “lose” his anal beads within his “loose” and cavernous anal cavity.

I see misuse of ‘course’ and ‘coarse’ often too

You were trying to be funny?

Oh okay my bad

I really don’t understand how you can get these things wrong in your mother tongue. Was it better before spell check software?

I think The Internet has played a major role.

People on the Internet generally do not bother to fix spelling errors or syntax.
