Fun for Friday: Words Condemned!

Lake Superior State University has published its 33rd annual List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.  The list is fun to look at and a good “reality” check on our own use and misuse of trendy words.

On the list this year:

  • Post 9/11
  • webinar
  • organic
  • perfect storm
  • it is what it is
  • under the bus
  • wordsmith

How many of these have you used this week?

Check out the entire list and let me know what you would add. I personally am casting votes for podcast, Web 2.0, metrics, and partner (as in “let’s partner on that”).
