English is sweet when it is well written and well spoken. But one does not just wake up and start speaking correct English. It requires a lot of hard work, commitment and dedication. Let's take a quick look at some of the blunders in the English Language.

1. You better mind your business.

This is unacceptable and incorrect. One

should simply say :

You had better mind your business.

2. The lady has open teeth.

The correct sentence is :

The lady is gap toothed.

3. Stop pouring me spit.

What you should say is :

Stop spitting on me.

4. Dangote is stinkingly rich.

The acceptable sentence is :

Dangote is stinking rich.

5. Praise the lord. Hallelujah!

Note : Praise the lord and hallelujah

mean the same. What you should say

is : Praise the lord. May His name be

praised.

6. She is a gossiper.

The correct sentence is :

She is a gossip.

7. The woman sells ice blocks.

What you should say is :

The woman sells blocks of ice.
