  • When I click on "Your Words" why does it send me to a page of Lists? I want to see the words I have chosen, not a list of lists? It doesn't make any sense at all!!!!

    Also, how do I make another list? I can't find any way of doing this!!

  • To this list I would add the phrase "Go-To-Market". They use this as a noun. It is supposed to be a synonym for "product" or "product marketing strategy" or something like that.

    Also, all forms of the word "function", such as "functionality". I'm a programmer and I find myself using this word all the time, but there's really not another word that means the same thing as "functionality", even though it's a totally made up word.

  • My all-time, most hated type of speech is execubabble. For example, the (?word?) 'incentivize'.

    It is a noun, not a #@#!#@!@ verb!! Stop with the verbification!!! (To quote a term coined by Grammar Girl).
