Default Banned words for 2011

Here is a list of banned words for 2011. Hope you don't use them too much....


Lake Superior State University (a small college in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan) released on Friday its annual list of "banished words" -- terms so overused, misused and hackneyed they deserve to be sent to a permanent linguistic trash can in the year ahead.

I've never heard anyone use facebook as a verb, but I understand using google as one. It's just much simpler to say than any of the alternatives.
