latest example "I seen." Absolutely atrocious, but seems to be getting quite popular even though it makes one sound like some kind of illiterate hick. "I seen your Daddy yesterday!" "I seen that same pistol at the gun show." "I seen it before, but I don't remember where." It seems like overnight, this ridiculously bad phrase has popped up in our collective vocabulary and become totally acceptable grammar. Whats up with that?
