Buzz Words that are annoying

post #1 of 348
Thread Starter 
Going off of the puke thread, what words annoy you?

One word that I find kind of annoying that gets thrown around a lot on the clothing fora is "sartorial".

Another word that's been getting annoying lately is the word "ironic".

What else?

Fora, I don't care how correct it is.

"Solutions" when what is really meant is "stuff we are selling."

Right now it's "Reagan democrats". If I hear this one more time...

Two things off the top of my head:

- somebody being "beaten to within an inch of his/her life"
- the use of the word "amount" instead of the correct "number", as in "there is a large amount of people in the theater"

OK, some of these are not buzz words.

If this is a general language pet peeve thread, then I want to add improper use of "over" v. "more than".

"New paradigm", "paradigm shift" ... Anything with "paradigm" makes my eyes roll instantly, which is actually not a good thing when it's a client saying it...

Thinking outside the box.

What is worse is that this one is recycled every time there is a "new new paradigm." In other words, every ten years or so. Green+anything to form one word.

I hate "outsource", as in

"there is a new paradigm shift in business strategies to outsource...."

For me, "bloke" and "firm" . Both are used by the Brits, the first for a dude(another word I hate) and the second for a soccer gang.

I also hate friendly. Child-friendly, eco-friendly, pet-friendly and all the rest of the friendly shit out there.

"touch base" and "synergies" does it for me at the moment
