Overly sensitive or Very annoying words and phrases
 
 


It really grates on my nerves when a word is used during some highly publitized situation and EVERYONE starts to use that word or phrase.  To me, when this happens, the word or phrase loses credibility and I judge (I know, not mannerly) the person using the word or phrase as someone who can't come up with an original thought.

Example:  the latest over used word in the English language is vitriol. Ever since the horrible shootings in Tucson this word has made its way into every article, speech, daily conversation, etc. 

Other overused words/phrases:

at the end of the day
visa vie
in this economy
awesome
basically
baby daddy

So do you have any to add to the list?

"Harbor" as a verb was always valid, but it zoomed up in usage after 9/11. When Bush said we'd go after those who harbor terrorists, everyone was saying (for example), I don't want to harbor any hard feelings or you shouldn't harbor that person after what he/she did.

The verb "have" is still just fine, people!

Lol, this reminds me of high school when we all would learn a couple advanced words a week and fell all over ourselves to use our new words. Regurgitate was a really good one for that!

I remember when older DS discovered the word "plethora" while in jr high. Just thinking about it gives me a headache.

Oh that's right! I forgot that this happened all the time in high school.

"Aplomb" was a word like that. "I spent the weekend with much aplomb!" It was also code for, drinking may or may not have happened.

 My middle son did the same thing with the word "deydrated."
nothing like a 4yr old telling you that he is dehydrated

'Per se'

it is not perse, per say or other mistakes. It has a specific meaning.

"awesome" however is imo perfectly acceptable as is any lingo used in the movie "Valley Girl" which set off the West Coast phenomena and made tubular a household word.

Just sayin' (lol) another over used word.

Okay - 'that's how we roll' if you are not a wheel, you do not roll.

 I had a friend do that when I taught him what "volition" meant.  Thing was, he couldn't remember the word!  He would come up to me randomly and say, "what was that word you taught me?"


Under annoying words and phrases for me:

Obamacare - now, I don't agree with the health-care package, but I refuse to call it this.  I do not agree with making up a word just to put something down.  He is our president, agree with him or not, he deserves a degree of respect.

I hate when people substitute "pregnant" for PREGO.

No, no, no. You are NOT spaghetti sauce.

Same goes for PREGGERS.

I should probably also say that using prego or preggers in a comic fashion is okay. It's just when people do it and they're dead serious. I don't know why, but it KILLS me.

Don't know if this counts but, a whole nother.
As in "That's a whole nother story"

No, no it's not. It's another story, or a whole other story, but nother is not a word.

See, "flounce" and "censure" sound like laundry products.

"Flounce. For that sunny spring in all your clothes."

"Censure Plus. For the toughest of stains."

Yes? No?

'text lingo' is what gamers used in MUDS pregraphics, going back to 1994/5 ish when the net was new.

Sorry, they stole it from gamers. they're just hacks trying to keep up biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

When I hear someone actually say "LOL" in conversation, I want to punch them. So, IVY.

As for Rachel Ray, I have never actually seen her talk. It used to be I didn't get around to it, but now I'm kind-of scared to. Should I be?

"Being in the dictionary" doesn't make it valid.

Merriam-Webster lists it as non-standard and says, "use regardless instead." For the record, a lot of words fall into that non-standard gray area, not just that one.

Merriam-Webster is not "THE" standard... lol. I go by the OED.

But

And as long as people continue to insist that "cheat" means "have sex with someone not your spouse" just because IT's in there like that, I can claim words listed that way are real too!

So there!

I hate it when people say "Bummer". It is a total disregard for a bad situation. It doesn't help that this horrible woman I used to work with would say it all the time, especially when I told her something was wrong with her work. Instead of fixing it, she'd say "bummer". Ahhhhhgggggghhhhhh!

Oh, and DD6 has started saying, "Blah, blah, blah". She says that at the wrong time and I may have to call DFCS on myself (j/k).

My parents say that when I was growing up (a precocious brat if there ever was one) if I did not know the right word to use I just made one up!  Sadly, I am not sure I have entirely grown out of that....plus I read alot and tend to adopt the words from my current book.  It can be bad if the book is something like, say, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy or something from around 1920 (they spoke so........formally then)  I am likely to start talking about the "long, dark, tea time of the soul" or speaking about how such and such is a type of "concern" Lol.

But I have been broken of irregardless - I do say regardless......now.

Oh! And the mother of all things that drive me crazy.

"Git R Dun"

I swore if anyone said that at my wedding, there would be blood. I warned all of my backwoods family that it would not be tolerated. In all honesty, I would have taken the cake knife to someone if that had been uttered at my wedding.

IVY. I would be prone to extreme and irrational violence if I had to hear that even once in awhile.

Well... If you want to hear a 30 something yo woman use the words: Yummo, sammies, delish, E.V.O.O. then explain that it stands for extra virgin olive oil, and so on. You'll need ear forks for her show.

My parents say that when I was growing up (a precocious brat if there ever was one) if I did not know the right word to use I just made one up!  Sadly, I am not sure I have entirely grown out of that....plus I read alot and tend to adopt the words from my current book.  It can be bad if the book is something like, say, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy or something from around 1920 (they spoke so........formally then)  I am likely to start talking about the "long, dark, tea time of the soul" or speaking about how such and such is a type of "concern" Lol.

But I have been broken of irregardless - I do say regardless......now.




 I sometimes make up my own words too. But if I do it, it's usually because I'm being a smart ass about something. I still wonder about people who use irregardless, is it even a word???

PQB, I think you have single-handedly weaned me of any curiosity. Thanks!

"Irregardless" -- sure it's a word but it's nonsense. It means "regarding" since the prefix and suffix cancel one another out.

I also dislike preoccupied. It's the same as irregardless, reduntant and unnecessary.

And I agree on Get R Done Celtic, annoying! Also, uber anything. Ugh!

here's my 'fingernails on a blackboard'....

my neice constantly refers to her 3 year old as her 'little man'...as in

"I took my little man shopping."
"My little man and I made cookies." etc.

For crying out loud...he's 3 years old...give him time to grow up!

On that note GG-I hate hearing couples refer to each other as "babe." There is a serious grossness factor there to me!

And it's annoying and stupid (and now I'm wondering how many posters are gonna hate me).

DH and I call each other our names, no honeys, hons, sweeties, babes or babies.

One should be Master or Mistress and the other should be "pet"...

I mean... if you are going to be so formal and everything...

Just sayin'

Well, we can't very well go around in public saying that now can we! Lest we attracted a lot of unwanted attention...

Well, I would, but then I usually call dh stinkbutt or snotface rather than sweetie or dear.  He calls me crumpet or kumquat because lovey-dovey names gross me out.

Deputy and I rarely use the other's name LOL.  In public we keep the pet-names to a minimum, I know it can gross others out smile

Now, it does bug me when someone other then Deputy calls me honey, sweetie, baby, etc.  I had some creepy guy calling me honey when I was a bank teller.  I looked him in the eye and said "there is only 1 man that is allowed to call me that, and you are NOT him"

When a female of my general age groups call me hon I have to fight the urge to slap her in the face.

Sorry guys! Good thing I'm in WA, very far away from "all y'all"

yeah, us Southern folks certainly have our own language... several actually depending on which part of the South you're in. There's the hicks, the yats, some very strange Appalachian dialects, and some even stranger coastal pigeon tounges and my personal favorite-- the old Southern aristocracy a la Scarlet O'Hara.

And most of them include some form of informal stranger address of "hon", "sweetie", "darlin'", "honey", "sugar", et cetera...

 I agree, it seems so condescending. Especially when you dont know the girl well or at all.

Probably because I'm not in "The South" (another annoying phrase by the way), so it's not the norm here. So when another girl says it it IS condescending.

Yeah, it's common here in Kentucky, even from girl to girl.  Sweetie and honey is especially common.

As a mid-western girl, I would never even let boyfriends call me anything like that.  But, then I met DH, and we called each other Sweetie, then we moved South, and I call everyone honey and sweetie, especially kids.  I, myself, am shocked at my complete turn around, but I like it, so it's ok.
