Not everyone who speaks are great orators. I wish I were an eloquent speaker, but I’m not. I’m more like a deer caught in headlights. I’m lucky if I can fumble my way through a complete sentence in a business meeting. I am always afraid that someone like you is going to shred apart my choice of words.
It might be easy for you, a published author, to be critical of others choice of words, but not everyone speaks accurately or concisely. Maybe trial attorneys are the exception because they are great at twisting around other people’s words. Most of us, however, are just trying to convey a message; albeit very poorly most of the time.
I am curious, why are you so overly critical of how others speak? I think I know why, but I would like to see how you respond.
