Banished Words

Each year Lake Superior State University publishes its "List of Words to Be Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness". This year, 'green', 'carbon footprint', and 'maverick' feature, as well as 'iconic'. There's also the phrase 'desperate search' for something that can't be found, as opposed to, simply, 'search'. You can express your own linguistic irritations by adding your own words or phrase here.
