The word lists set by The Lake Superior State University are more often than not words that inhibit our thinking or discourage us from creating more elaborate discourse in our day to day lives.

eReflect, vocabulary software developers announced today that the Lake Superior State University has published its much anticipated banished 2013 word list; words that are notorious for their abuse, uselesness or blatant misuse. The 2013 word list is the 38th word list issued by the Lake Superior State University and each year it is a much-anticipated event for linguists, sociologists and language lovers more generally.

eReflect, parent company of Ultimate Vocabulary™ suggested that for all the individuals wishing to improve their vocabulary these word lists needs to be considered for deletion, or at least revision. The word lists set by The Lake Superior State University are more often than not words that inhibit our thinking or discourage us from creating more elaborate discourse in our day to day lives. The developer company of Ultimate Vocabulary™ software has mentioned that despite some words being prime examples of creativity and language’s incessant growing process, most of the time “these words act as demotivators, you won’t improve your vocabulary when keep using these misused or overly abused words” eReflect software developers stated.

The list is a comprehensive, colorful one, with words from political jargon, urban slang and words heavily used in social media and social networking websites. Some of the words included are the extensively used ‘fiscal cliff’ phrase, which politicians and journalists alike use in place of the most appropriate and realistic financial crisis, the ‘YOLO’ acronym; the modern equivalent of carpe diem and words or phrases such as ‘bucket list’, the self-contradictory ‘trending; concept, ‘spoiler alert’ and the word ‘guru’.

Commenting on these words, Ultimate Vocabulary™ eReflect developers revealed that their misuse somehow distorts their meaning and mitigates their appeal, making their sense or meaning less intense. On the other hand, some of these are only temporarily popular and hopefully in a few years’ time their popularity will lose its allure especially for younger people.
