The List Volume LXIV
Written by: WhyDid | The List

banished words

Earlier this year, the fine folks of Lake Superior State University created a list of “banished” words (words that are overused and just need to stop being spoken… or spelled).  In case you missed it, here was this year’s list from LSSU:

  1. Amazing
  2. Baby bump
  3. Shared sacrifice
  4. Occupy
  5. Blowback
  6. Man cave
  7. The new normal
  8. Pet parent
  9. Win the future
  10. Trickeration
  11. Ginormous
  12. Thank you in advance

While I think they did a fine job summarizing some of the most trite words in our vocabulary, here are ten more words that I think may need to be added to the list.  The sheer utterance of these makes my blood boil.

  1. Amazeballs
  2. Sunday Funday
  3. Obsessed
  4. Rise and grind
  5. Get excited
  6. Just saying
  7. Don’t mind if I do
  8. Literally
  9. Curated
  10. That’s what I’m talking about

Are you guilty of any (or all) of these commonly used words?  Are there any that you think should be added?
