wordsplash-home-tmbLake Superior State University in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, has just published its annual list of words and phrases that should be banished from English because they are overused and irritating .

The list includes cliches such as “perfect storm,” “It is what it is,” “post-9/11,” and “Don’t tase me, bro.”
