More People I’m Sick Unto Death Of

People who use the word “signage,” e.g., “We’ve got to put up some signage so people can find the right conference rooms.”

Look — like most words, the plural of “sign” is formed by adding “-s” at the end, not “-age.” This kind of language abuse just makes everyone stupider.

    signage ~ Link to Merriam Webster Dictionary

    I hate the use of this word; it’s used often by Hawaiian locals. “There should be plenty signage, yeah?” Egad.

    Not a big fan of “Sinage” either.
    Sounds like a nasal condition.
    Its pretty stupidage, actually.
