Oh, it’s one of MRP’s favorite times of the year: when Lake Superior State University releases its annual List of Words to Be Banished from the Queen’s English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness.
Tops on the 2008 list are words referring to the economy (bailout), the presidential election (maverick), and the environment (green). Also making the list were staycation, Wall Street/Main Street, and First Dude. And, oh yes, it’s that time of year again. Check out the complete 2008 list.
