Tweedle Dee Dictionary, Part 13

This week's entry is an expression used incorrectly, rather than a word.

Used of it. Example, "You’ve just got to get used of it". I believe the person means to say 'used to it'.

Another personal favourite of mine is when someone says "could of" as in "I could of eaten that whole cake." It gives me the twitches.

Or the grammatically incorrect use of "been." As in "I been to Calgary last month."
