My old stamping grounds, not my old stomping grounds.

Probably, not probly.

And many others, but those are the first two that come to mind.

Champing at the bit, not chomping at the bit

Also, short-lived and long-lived rhyme with high-fived.

http://grammarist.com/usage/champing-chomping-at-the-bit/

Exerpt: "The idiom is usually written chomping at the bit, and some people consider this spelling wrong. But chomp can also mean to bite or chew noisily (though chomped things are often eaten, while champed things are not), so chomp at the bit means roughly the same as champ at the bit."

English, it's a living language. I used to argue about about how it must stay exactly the same as I learned it, but that's just silly. Everything evolves. Look at religion.

Bravo! The purpose of language is to communicate ideas to others. If a person has communicated their idea, even if they used idioms or incorrect grammar, then their effort was successful. A listener who makes demands for mechanical correctness in others' speech is making a demand that speech serve themselves alone as opposed to its true purpose, which is to serve the speaker and the listener equally.
