Mr. Laumer alluded to Sault Ste Marie's Lake Superior University's list of banished words in his post on "green, sustainable, concrete." It is a challenge they have been running for 22 years where people write in and suggest words that should be "Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness." (and I thought they were on the American side of the border). There were quite a few suggestions that have been found on TreeHugger. Which do agree are tired or expired? Multiple choices accepted, and please suggest your own additions, which we will add to the survey.
