Web resource for language

Jeff Haden at Inc.com offers “10 Phrases Great Speakers Never Say.” While this list is not directed toward students, it does include several mistakes that students often make. Along with listing each mistake it also explains why it is a mistake and what to do instead.

This would be a good addition to a class web site or to cite as backup, especially regarding how to treat visual aids.

I welcome suggestions for additions.
