BOSTON (CBS) — If you’ve found yourself saying things like “physicality” and “problematic,” then congratulations: you’re using words one university believes should be banned in 2016.
On Thursday, Lake Superior State University released its 41st annual List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Over-use and General Uselessness.READ MORE: Celtics Beat Short-Handed Raptors For 4th Win In 6 Games
The school compiled their list based on the feedback they received from the public.
Nearly a dozen words appear on the list, including “conversation,” “giving me life,” “manspreading,” “price point,” “stakeholder” and “vape.”
Some of the phrases on the list are “break the Internet” and “walk it back.”READ MORE: Keller @ Large: Why 'Don't Talk To Strangers' May Be The Wrong Advice For Children
The university also suggests using “presser” in place of press conference, and discontinuing the use of “so” to start a sentence.
Words appearing on last year’s list include “BAE,” or before all else, “cra-cra” and “foodie,” according to Lake Superior State’s complete list of banished words.
