Solecism -[sälə•sizəm] – noun:

a grammatical mistake in speech or writing

Thoughts: This comes from Greek soloikismos, from soloikos ‘speaking incorrectly’. This could LITERALLY make certain words obsolete if the incorrect usage spreads too far, too fast. Also of note, this is how the evolution of the spoken language occurs, no?
