Each year the folks at Lake Superior State University publish one of my favorite lists. This list contains words or phrases that they believe should be banned because they are overused or just, well, they just shouldn't be used period.
This year's Lake Superior State University List of Banned Words contains some interesting ones such as viral, FAIL, epic, A-Ha moment, and one phrase that I think has become as demeaning in its overuse, The American People. As the nominator says, aren't all Americans people?
Anyway, enjoy this year's list. And if you want to see all the words that have been banned in the past here's a link to that as well.
