Amazing list of 2012 Banished Words from Lake Superior State University

Just kidding about the use of the word “amazing” in the headline.

Lake Superior State University just released its 37th annual List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse, and General Uselessness.

(The Queen referenced above is Queen Elizabeth, not me…)

Banished words

Sick of hearing how every company in the country is “green”? Don’t even have enough money for a “staycation”? Don’t give a hoot about your “carbon footprint”? Then visit Lake Superior State University’s 2009 List of Banished Words. All three of the terms that I put in quotation marks above are now officially banned, along with “maverick” and “first dude.”

For theĀ  last 34 years, LSSU has published an annual “List of Words to Be Banished from the Queen’s English for Mis-use, Over-use, and General Uselessness.”
