Worst Words of 2009?
Posted by: Admin
Here's a twist on the "top words" lists that come out each year. Lake Superior State University has released its 35th annual "List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-use, Over-use, and General Uselessness." Among the banished words (although the idea of banishment is really wishful thinking) are tweet, toxic assets, and bromance.
The words are selected from several thousand nominations submitted from all over the world. Anyone can make a nomination, using the banishment form on the university's Web site.
