Word mis-use

The latest entrant in the word mis-use category is "premier" and "premiere."

I attended a meeting yesterday where a presenter used the term "premiere," to describe something new and really important. I, of course, sat there wishing to say, "uh...don't you mean "premier?"

Here are the definitions of each:

- "Premier"--First in position, rank or importance.
- "Premiere"--A first performance or exhibition.
