Banished Words for 2013

The list is out: the words or phrases that we’re just plain sick of hearing.

FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports:

Audio clip:

Are you getting tired of hearing this…

“The fiscal cliff.”//”The fiscal cliff.”

Or variations of that…

“Hanging from the cliff.”

You are not alone. That phrase, “fiscal cliff”, is on the list.

The 38th annual “List of Words to be Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse, and General Uselessness”.

The list is put out by Lake Superior State University in Michigan.

Other phrases on the list to be banned, if only the could be, “kick the can down the road”, “bucket list”, and one other word that’s trending… “trending”.
