I just graded a pile of papers for a writing class, and I can’t tell you how many students wrote now days when they meant nowadays.
Is this because of faulty hearing, faulty pronunication, or just faulty learning of English words? I mean, nowadays could sound like now days depending upon how the person pronounces it.
Which came first–the now or the days? LOL
(TIP: Don’t use the stupid word anyway. Today works just fine.)
