10 Words That You’ve Probably Been Misusing

10 Words That You’ve Probably Been Misusing.

In all honesty, I have been misusing 2, perhaps 3 in my daily speechifying(!), but come on…this is how a language develops!  Actually, I do try to be so careful about knowing the words I use on a daily basis.  This is very amusing – read it!  Enjoy!

en·joy  [en-joi]

verb (used with object)

1.  to experience with joy; take pleasure in: He enjoys Chinese food.

2.  to have and use with satisfaction; have the benefit of: He enjoys an excellent income from his trust funds.

3.  to find or experience pleasure for (oneself): She seems to enjoy herself at everything she does.

4.  to undergo (an improvement): Automobile manufacturers have enjoyed a six-percent rise in sales over the past month.

5.  to have intercourse with.    .….huh?  I did not know that (think of Johnny Carson here)
