    Default What's a buzzword you love to hate?

    "Curate" is one of mine. It's a fabulous word for the talentless, dumbed down, hype-without-substance, shallow generation.

    "going forward" (oh, that's two words I guess).

    "blah blah blah going forward...." so glad you stipulated that the thing we are discussing will not take place in the past.

    Anytime the word unique has an adverb before it - I leave the room.

    That's a somewhat unique sentiment

    I cringe whenever I hear that in a corporate meeting.

    My eyes, they burn; I usually only encounter "lean in" in people's speech... I truly hate that one. All of them, really.

    UChicago had a hilarious grad school sentence generator up for a while ... endless fun.

    Buzzwords, to me, are a sign people are desperate for what we're doing to be new and to make a mark... it's like we can't appreciate the mysteries of the words and ideas we already have going. The hubris of Ozymandias in our own little fiefdoms. Anyway, great thread, @Chik.
