Important Words that become Impotent
I have become saddened by the overuse of some words.... words that used to have meaning to me.... cool words like "elite". I hear it so much now that by my understanding of the definition, it is by definition no longer elite. Other words that I now tend to ignore as they seem to be more hype and background noise than actual information exchanging vehicles... are: new; best. I found this list of the 10 most overused words in metal journalism, and found it to be interesting. I didn't know what "metal journalism" was until I checked out the site. I guess that phrase isn't overused.
