comment Is there a word that specifically refers to reaching the top of a hill or mountain?
If you repeat the word, you're not using it as intended. You summit a mountain, not a summit. (And why is it that you might end up repeating the word? Would it be an accident or something?)

comment “Must of ” vs “must have”
Using of in place of have (especially in "should've") has likely crossed the threshold in British English already. I don't have it in front of me right now, but I believe the dialogue in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone uses of exclusively. (It's global-searched-and-replaced to -'ve for the American Sorcerer's Stone.)
