In spoken English, many people have taken to using “verse” in place of versus. It’s Yankees verse Red Sox on channel 51.
Going a step further, some will even use it as a verb, meaning to play against. We got a new ping pong table – I’ll verse you.
Not sure if this is purely an artifact of the New England Speech Impediment or if it’s more widespread than that. Regardless: Stop it, people. Just stop.
