I have created my own banned list. After the associated contest ends tonight, the list mat approach 1000 words that readers don't want to see anymore. http://plainlanguage.com/bathetic.html


Interesting article. LSS does this every year, much of it tongue-in-cheek. However, I'm curious why you used the term "Queen's English" in your piece. LSS is in Michigan, most of your readers probably live in the US and you write in North American English. The "Queen's English" is only spoken in a limited area in Britain. Just sayin'.
