Words with No Place in Plain English

At plainlanguage.com you can find a “Bathetic Word  List,” consisting of words that have  no place in clear, effective communication. This list of about 500 words may humble those of us who champion plain English, but still use a great many of these words. This list is a bit more inclusive than my list would be, but still worth pondering.
