Don’t ‘measure the measurer’. Advertisers are major culprits but you might have seen this type of error in other places. What does it mean? It’s such a common mistake, you mightn’t even realise why it’s wrong.
If you were to ask one hundred people for the definition of ‘trite’, I predict a large percentage would say it means ‘silly’, ‘superficial’, ‘inconsequential’, ‘trivial’ or something similar. That’s not what it means, though.
We can use one or more of those words to describe something which also happens to be trite, but the words aren’t directly related. None of the words is a synonym of ‘trite’.
