comment “I'm lovin' it”
I am not qualified to answer, but this phrase was the subject of an entire episode of Grammar Girl: "According to the rule, “I’m loving it” is not grammatically correct because it uses a stative verb—in this case, one that conveys emotion, love—in a progressive tense." and "“I’m loving it” does sound slightly off, and that draws attention. Perhaps that’s why McDonald’s chose it". To native speakers that know grammar it should sound weird (?)

comment If enough people say “supposably” instead of “supposedly”
@Jon Purdy: I was thinking of two complete sentences as examples to illustrate the difference. It is a bit too abstract for me as it stands.

comment Is it Web site or website?
@fabrik: yes, agreed. Although in this case, today, it is 3.51 billion vs. 3.73 billion. BTW, "web site" is 0.28 billion (a factor of about 12).

revised Independance or Independence?
"extant" is a valid adjective, although seldomly used. But in most cases it is used in a context where it is a misspelling of "extent".
