Lake Superior State University has just released its “2011 List of Banished Words.” Check it out here. It’s pretty good. I’m especially pleased that they included “Man up.”
But they left out so many awful words and terms, including one of my personal annoyances, “reach out to” as a synonym for “contact.” Or what about “no worries!” in place of “you’re welcome?” Didn’t that use to be Australian? Why do I need to have it in Los Angeles?
Here are some words I don’t want to see or hear in 2011:
In This Economy
Crazy – (anything)
Which ones have I left out??
