Lake Superior State University has issued its 2007 list of banished words. Some are annoying words and phrases, such as celebrity combo names (e.g., TomKat). Others are incorrect usages, such as freely substituting healthy for healthful (while your salad may be healthful, it isn't healthy--it's dead).
At the bottom of the page, readers are invited to submit their own nominations for 2008.
