Annual Word and Phrase List

I started this list in 2015. 

“I love words. I feel triumphant when I chose a word judiciously. As a consumer of podcasts, broadcasts, lectures and other media I often hear the same words and expressions ad nauseam. They aren’t bad words–just overused words. They need a little break from usage to regain their power.”

Here is my 2019 list. Cheers to 2020.
