LSSU UNLEASHES 42ND ANNUAL LIST OF BANISHED WORDS INTO A POST-TRUTH WORLD
December 31, 2016
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. - The wordsmiths at Lake Superior State University have taken their best "guesstimate" and released LSSU's 42nd annual List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness.
“Overused words and phrases are a 'bête noire' for thousands of users of the 'manicured' Queen's English,” said an LSSU spokesperson, who released the 'historic' list during a town hall meeting. “We hope our modest 'listicle' will figure 'bigly' in most 'echo chambers' around the world.”
LSSU's word banishment tradition is now in its fifth decade, and was started by the late W. T. Rabe, a public relations director at Lake Superior State University.
