Your vocabulary will tell you apart from one generation to another. After all if you are going around still saying the words Dude and Smooth and Sup Yo you are probably from the 1980’s.

So these guys from the LSSU‘s banded together and decided to create a list to try and banish overused words or phrases. Apparently this idea is not new and dates back to 1975 when former LSSU Public Relations Director Bill and his colleagues whimsically decided banish words and phrases he felt was overused.


Too many words?

So, what’s on the list? Cheezestix.com takes a look.

List of proposed overused words or phrases to be banished:

– Fiscal cliff. This was the word that got the most nominations.
– Kick the can down the road.
– Job creators/creation.
– Passion/passionate.
– YOLO. You only live once.
– Spoiler alert.
– Bucket list.
– Trending.
– Superfood.
– Guru.
