Annual Word Banning List
(2007-12-31)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Lake Superior State University is banishing
"wordsmith" and "it is what it is" from the Queen's English.
They are part of 19 words or phrases appearing in the Michigan
school's annual list of overused, misused or words of general
uselessness.
They were chosen from about 2,000 nominations. The Upper
Peninsula school has released the 33rd version of the lighthearted
list today.
"Surge" in reference to a military build up, "perfect
storm," "under the bus" and "organic" also have made the list.
