Apparently, irregardless is now entering the dictionary.
I hate this word.
I hate when people use this word.
I hate it because it’s not a word.
It contradicts itself.
I once ruled out a candidate who was interviewing to be my assistant because she used this word on the interview.
So why is it now going to appear in dictionaries?
I don’t know…
I was told a few months ago that I focus too much on words…
But words are important to me. There is power in words. The right words can make you fall in love. The wrong ones can destroy your soul.
Who decides what the right words are? Who decides what the wrong ones are?
The term Master Bedroom is on the way out…
How do we feel about irregardless being in, and master bedroom being out?
If we are going to get rid of words/phrases, I’d much rather get rid of “it’s not you, it’s me”…To me, that’s a phrase that’s ridiculous. But maybe I just don’t like things that contradict themselves…
So what words/phrases would you add if you could?
What words/phrases would you get rid of? (remember- this is words/phrases- not concepts. I’d like to get rid of hate, but just like judging and lying- the concepts will always exist)
Do words matter? Do some words matter more than others?
Is it the words themselves, or is it how the sentence is formed?
Give me a few words on words…
