My German exchange student was quite fond of the word “ever.” “I ever go shopping with my friends. I ever listen to country music.”
Vainly I tried to explain while 'ever' is not improper, a better word choice is 'always'. She retorted: “My Spanish teacher says ‘never ever do this or that. She doesn’t say never always!’”
