GUEST,Banjo Johnny Worst New Words in the 'English' Lang. (143* d) RE: Worst New Words in the 'English' Lang. 27 Jun 00

This discussion has kept me laughing for an hour!

I'm only mildly irked with people who want to "axe" a question. And only slightly moreso by those who call me "yall". I suppose these are Americanisms.

But to me the all-time international annoyance is the misuse of the word "hopefully". (Hopefully, I don't have to explain why.)

The next person who begins a sentence with "hopefully" will be taken out and shot.

There was quite a discussion here about teaching Ebonics in school. (Or "skoo", to use the Ebonic.) A question arose as to what would be done about a student who flunked Ebonics. Would he then be required to attend a course in Remedial Ebonics?
