Posted by Bruce Kahl on January 26, 2002 at

Lake Superior State University released its 27th annual List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-Use, Over-Use and General Uselessness.The compilation draws from hundreds of nominations received from all over the world by mail and through the Internet.

LSSU forms a committee in December to review the year's entries and decide which of them will be included on the list. Word-watchers pull nominations from everyday speech, as well as from the news, fields of education, technology, advertising, politics, and more.
