It's time for Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival hosted by the lovely ladies of YA Highway. Today's question:
What words do you absolutely hate? Which ones do you adore?
WORDS I LOVE
I love all words, but I especially love words that are fun to say.
Don't those just feel cool in your mouth? I love that.
WORDS I HATE
Okay, so I don't love all words. I don't like words that serve no purpose expect to make you seem like you are smarter than you are.
OMG, I hate the word utilize SO MUCH. It's the exact same word as use. It doesn't mean anything different. JUST SAY USE. IT IS THE SAME.
Going along with that, I really hate those corporate buzzwords. Things like this make me so glad I no longer work in advertising, because crap like this was tossed around will-nilly. Drove me nuts. It happens in education, too, but I'm not in meetings every day, so I can handle it.
You know what I mean, things like...
UGH. Stop making up new, stupid words for things.
What about you guys...any words you love and hate?
