This is a mistake which I have noticed a number of times recently; the instances cited above are just ones I picked from a forum search. So, today's lesson:

Deprecation (pronounced depp-ree-kay-shun) and depreciation (pronounced dee-pre-shee-ay-shun) are not the same word.

THANK YOU!!!!

My wife does this one and I try to tell her, but she thinks I'm just nitpicking and have no clue.

Today's lesson:

The cops were called and somehow the situation was diffused.

Defuse (pronounced "dee-fews") and diffuse (pronounced "diff-ewes" when a verb, or "diff-yooce" when an adjective) are not the same word.

Quote:
It's happened. Literally the most misused word in the language has officially changed definition. Now as well as meaning "in a literal manner or sense; exactly: 'the driver took it literally when asked to go straight over the traffic circle'", various dictionaries have added its other more recent usage. As Google puts it, "literally" can be used "to acknowledge that something is not literally true but is used for emphasis or to express strong feeling".

If that's true (it seems a bit "they've taken gullible out of the dictionary" to me), is it the first case of a word meaning something and also its exact opposite?

"Quite" used to be the same apparently. It used to mean exactly or precisely. Now it means a - moderate amount of.

"Nice" used to mean neat or precise and now just means "not nasty".
