It’s Time to Drop These Words and Phrases

text size A A A

Perhaps since I’m a writer, I’m a bit overly sensitive, but there’s a growing list of words and phrases that I’m really tired of reading in print or online, and hearing on TV. (TV newspeople are the worst.) Here’s my latest candidates for obliterating from the language (or at least parking them for awhile.) Read it over and let me know if you have any additions:

Chilling
Proactive
Sustainable
Green
Killer app
Anything “mega”
Going forward
Ironic
Famously
On steroids
Perfect storm
Conversation (As in “we just want our social media campaign to start a conversation.”)

What do you think? Any more for the list?
