WORDS WE HATE BIGLY

Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

NORTH­ERN Michi­gan’s Lake Su­pe­rior State Uni­ver­sity has re­leased its 42nd an­nual List of Words Ban­ished from the Queen’s English for Mis­use, Overuse and Gen­eral Use­less­ness.

The tongue-incheek list comes from sug­ges­tions to the Sault Ste. Marie school. It in­cludes “on fleek”, “bigly” and “lis­ti­cle”. Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump was fond last year of say­ing “big league” but mak­ing it sound like “bigly”.
