Some English speakers just don't get it. All over
southeastern Michigan, new office buildings are
given names such as "Green Oaks Officenter."
The last word is intended to be read as "Office
Center." Many bank holding companies have
added "Bancorp" to their names. Again, this is
intended to be read "Bank Corp."

I find this very annoying.
