Proper English is being corrupted by the creeping malignancy of ebonics.

Even media personalities say "enegy" instead of "energy".

guppy touched on it. There is no such word as “alot.” That probably bothers me too much.

Did anybody mention "jive" yet? E.g.: "That doesn't jive with the facts." Uhm... no. The word for which you're looking is "jibe." (Not to be confused with "gybe" in this context.)
