Feedback at 5:00: Lake Superior State University’s List of Banned Words
2014 is almost over and that means it’s time for Lake Superior State University’s list of banned words and phrases.
The school released its 40th list of words to be banished from the Queen’s English for misuse, overuse and uselessness today.
Words at the top include bae, curated, skill set, takeaway and polar vortex.
Hack, foodie, swag and cray-cray are also on this year’s list.
Words are based on submissions received throughout the year.
The words announced today will join an archive of about 800 words.
We want to know what you think about these words.
Do you agree with banning them, or would you have added other words?
It’s tonight’s Feedback at 5:00.
