    Default Words That Irritate You.

    Do you sometimes get annoyed by reading certain words? It can be anywhere. On the forums, newspaper, email etc.

    One example is 'congrats'. This really irritates the hell out of me. This word is used too much nowadays. Even for bloody unimportant things.

    What about you?

    All US neologisms, whereby a noun is used to form a verb: "author a book"; "critique a book" "to medal" (as in win a medal at the Olympics); "gifted" (as in giving a gift), etc.

    One phrase that really annoys me is "people of colour" (or, since it is popular in the US, "people of color"). Everyone, even albinos, have a skin colour.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
