    We've had "favorite word" discussions, but what about a thread on abused words. By "abused" I don't really mean "used ungrammatically." I mean "used inappropriately so often that most all their force and meaning has been beaten out of them."

    legit

    Both of these. As for the latter, first time I heard it was when some chick was describing seeing pictures of her boyfriend as a kid. She said "he was the most legit 4 year old!" I quipped about her use of the word and made her look stupid. My friends had a good laugh at that one.

    Anymore, used incorrectly, always gets my goat.
