Ah, you had me scurrying round the internet following the reference. Precisely! Sometimes we have committed to being disinterested!

Oh, thank you for writing this. It gives me great pleasure to add my distaste for certain "workplace words" to this.
Two of mine, from the marketing world:

"Graphical" design. I believe the word is "graphic."

"Verbiage." It's just a pretentious way of saying wording.

There are many more, but it's still early where I am. If I think of more, I'll be returning! Thanks again.

Hi, Dina,

Thanks for the additions (someone really said "graphical"?!).

I enjoyed checking out your blogs and website; we are kindred spirits when it comes to language.

So glad you decided to stop by...
