I don't post much on Facebook, but I put a couple of bits up last week that got quite a good response.
"In the copy I've edited today was this gem: 'The evening’s presentation
by xxx gave a fascinating insight into the application and calibration
of electronic torque wrenches.' One can only imagine."
This got more comments/likes/reactions that almost anything else I've ever posted.
"There is no excuse for the word 'mentee'."
This also got a reasonable response. When the world eventually comes to its senses and puts me in charge, I shall forbid this word. There is a perfectly fine word to describe someone who is mentored and that word is protege (with accents, but I couldn't get them to appear here). I also hate attendee. What's wrong with 'delegate', 'participant' or 'person who attended'?
What words would you like to banish?
