By homonyms, I meant using words that don't fit at all, like saying "I took a picure with my camcorder," or something like that.

The mistake that most annoys me is the misuse of 'only.'

Only is singular. You may not write, "One of the only few . . ."

You may write, "One of the few . . ."

or

you may write, "The only . . ."


This seems to be the mistake that causes me to start talking to myself.
