Each one of us has a button. Or twenty.
My father’s has always been “unique.”
The meaning of unique is “one of a kind.” Considering this, you can’t be VERY one of a kind. You can’t be soooo one of a kind. You also can’t be totally one of a kind. One of a kind is one of a kind is one of a kind- end of story.
By the age of 6 I was well aware of the proper usage of unique.
My thing is “variety.”
Varieties and varietals are different things.
“A variety” refers to a grape type. “A varietal” refers to a bottled wine that was made from one variety. “We have planted many varieties in our vineyard” is a grammatically correct sentence. “We have planted many varietals” means absolutely nothing.
And now we know.
Hopefully we are not uniquely in the know.
