If you’re looking to improve your diction in 2015 you may want to look over ‘Lake Superior State University’s 40th Annual List of Banished Words’. Pop culture terms such as “Cra-cra” “Swag” and “Bae” among others are all officially banned by the Michigan University. The 2014 list has a total of 12 words believed to be unworthy of the English language. If improving your English is a new years resolution, perhaps you should try to avoid the following taboo terms:
- Polar Vortex
- Skill Set
- Curate / Curated
- Enhanced Interrogation
- -Nation (In reference to the fanbase of a sports team such as ‘Leafs-Nation’)
Why do people call me Cra-cra….meaning?
