This passion doesn’t stop at our least favorite words.
In a recent brainstorming meeting, I had the misfortune of using the word “pianist” to describe my planned post on Josh Wright (who is a wonderful piano player). Having never been a fan of that word (in its correct pronunciation, that is), I sympathized with Ashley Evanson, our online editor, when she proceeded to cringe and stick her tongue out. Naturally the meeting digressed into us listing our least favorite words. Here are some of them:
- Moist (one of the most commonly hated words—there are even several Facebook pages devoted to showing disgust for the word here, here, and here)
Oh, so much fodder for teasing one another.
What’s your least favorite word?
