Share this post

"Selfie" might be the word of the year, according to the Oxford Dictionary. But according to Lake Superior State University, it should be banished from the English language. The school released a list of words it never wants to hear again on every New Year's Eve. ABC News reports the language cops at Lake Superior State University hope you'll never say selfie again. That leads the school's annual list of misused, overused or just useless words.  This year's runners up include - twerk, or twerking. Hashtag. Twittersphere. Obamacare. Adversity, in the context of sports. And any word ending in geddon or pocalypse.
