Probably all people who love words have THE word that they hate. It might be slang or swear, overused or unspecific, filler or fabricated. I think my dad dislikes the word actually, thinking it superfluous, which it usually is. I remember lightly slapping my preteen kids every time they used the word like as filler, and thankfully they did not develop that habit of speech! I have a friend who can’t bear suck, although she can tolerate and sometimes uses fuck. I have other friends who can get 2,089 points from a three letter word in Scrabble and I question the legitimacy of all of those! If I chose just one word that I hate, it would be just that. That word appears in my writing without a care or thought and then I most often delete it during editing. In this post alone, there are at least a couple that’s that require removal. And that’s all I have to say about that.
