I have the same reaction to those who say "nucular" instead of "nuclear".

And what about 'there' instead of 'their'.... I see it often...

I'm guilty.

But "comprised of" is an idiom meaning the same as "comprises". I guess I grew up in an area where "comprised of" was part of the local dialect. Unlike "there vs their" and "hanger vs hangar", at least 'comprised of' means that same as 'comprises' and is accepted as correct in some areas of the country.

It is irratating that our language gets misused until the misused term is eventually accepted... but I guess it is normal for languages to morph over time.

Y'all's as tuff a grammatical ,spelling and english composition group as some of those RV guys over on VAF. Couple of those fellows get all bent out of shape over conditional inspection vs.condition inspection :roll: :wink:

Note: this is coming from a guy who thinks it's perfectly acceptable to be creative in your interpretations of how some words aughts to be spelt. :mrgreen:
