Today’s Grammar Gripes

Don’t say “beg the question” when you mean “raise the question.”  We’ve talked about this before.

There is no “K” sound in “et cetera.”  See that second letter?  It’s a “T”.

Don’t use “impact” as a verb when you mean “effect.” Not that it’s strictly wrong, it’s just become overused to the point of cliche.
