Is it reduced or lowered?


Budgeting Class#3And now a word about words….
Recently a new usage of an old favorite is really…REALLYYYY bothering me. I don’t know why, it’s not like it’s a federal crime to misuse words..it just bugs me.

Advertisers, and now the general public, have started saying that “we’re going to lower rates”, these prices have been “lowered”….etc. etc. But in my mind, an object, like a flag, is lowered (as in reduced in height), but prices are reduced!
Nuf’ said, now that I’ve got that out of my system, are there any word misuses that really get under your skin?
Do tell!
