banished words list

Here you can find a com­plete list of “ban­ished words”- orga­nized by year — from decades past through the present (such as “irre­gard­less” and “bling bling”). Hours of idle fun. My favorite: “fruit­wor­thy”.

Ban­ished by whom? Some obscure word-ban­ish­ing selec­tion com­mit­tee I’ve nev­er heard of. Ban­ished from what? Not sure…since most of these words are still part of the com­mon vernacular.

  1. My favorite is ‘bridge metaphors.’ The love­ly city (phrase)in the sea is its own metaphor. I’d like to see some­one try and cross that bridge.
