Irregardless.  That's redundant.  You're pretty much saying, "Regardful," which is also not a word.  The correct word is, "Regardless."

This is one that annoys the hell out of me, thank you for mentioning it! I was in a production of "A Little Night Music" recently and one of the girls in the show consistently said, "Irregardless of their matrimonial obligations" instead of "regardless of..." I would cringe every single time that line was uttered.
Webster's says it's a word, but "nonstandard"...   representing an intensification of the
absense of "regard" for the matter at hand.

"amn't"
People in this town use it quite a lot.

Sentence: "I'm really quite poor, amn't I?"
It annoys me

I DIDN'T THINK THAT WAS A WORD! I saw it on a thread a bit ago and was like, whut?? but I didn't like to say anything because I'm almost always wrong about these things.

Not a word!

If it's good enough for Section 25 it's good enough for me. Next you'll be saying that aenima isn't a word.

it doesn't bother me, but people sometimes add a 'h' when they're saying height. like, heighth. it's odd, i don't know why.

also, double negatives bother me a little when they're used to try and convey something positive.

I'll admit that I can't document it right away, but I have a suspicion that
"heighth" is a linguistic artifact, and that it may once have been the proper
form, in line with "depth" and "width"...

Just a hunch.

Coupon.

it's spelled like a word, but the way i say it, my boyfriend always yells at me and says "That's not a word!"...  ("Qupon" "Kyoopon" lol)he's an english major... so he gets annoyed with things i say all the time.

also i hate when people say things in real life they way you would text something, as if it's a word. like "OhEmGee".

it's not exactly what the threads about but sort of....

Using "malus" as the opposite of "bonus"
"Anyways" always annoys me as well; I hear it in the root'nest, toot'nest Gabby Hayes voice imaginable.
