Words, Words, Words…Ready to Banish Some?
It’s that time of year again! Since 1976, Lake Superior State University has published a list of Banished Words. These are words that come not just from the University but are sent in from around the world. Words that some would love to see banished.
What’s on the list???
-At the end of the day
-That being said
-Asking for a friend
-You’re on mute
There are a few on the list that I must admit to having used… some that don’t bother me…and some that I had to look up to see what they meant.
As you can imagine, most of last year’s words were related to that virus. If you’d like to see the lists from previous words you can head here.
On my Hall of Fame of Banished Words list…
-My bad (your bad what?)
-Just sayin’ (You’re saying what?)
-Me and Joe (this is like nails on a chalkboard for me)
What about you? Are there words or phrases that you would love to see, if not banished, at least not said in your presence??
