Lexicide don’t do grammar, but I couldn’t resist linking to Grammar Girl’s article “Bad Versus Badly.” This has always been a pet peeve of mine. In short, if you regret something, you feel bad. If you suffer from analgesia, you feel badly. Or, if you stab someone in the back but insist, “Gosh, I feel badly,” well, you’ve spoken the truth.
