    1) Might could, as in "He might could fix that pipe."
    2) The word Nice. Except when said sarcastically; then it doesn't irritate me as much.
    3) Community, as in "part of the.." or "who will take care of..." or, worse yet, "give back to the ..."
    4) Dropping the word "from", as in "I graduated [from] high school"
