I am fascinated by mis-use of words I've been picking up lately. Examples are:
1. careened instead of careered, as in 'the birds went careening madly about the sky''
2. demise instead of defeat/downfall, as in 'the batsman contributed to his own demise through his poor choice of stroke' this being quite common among sporting commentators
3. snuk instead of sneaked, as in 'upon seeing the policeman she snuk out of sight' usage which I thought at first was a joke but it is popping up a lot. Unfortunately.
