Happy New Year: now let us never use these words again

This is a year end list I can get behind. What words or phrases would you add to the list? Ok Boomer also made the list, but I’m not ready to let that one go yet. (from Inside Higher Ed.)

The most nominated word or phrase for 2020 was quid pro quo.

Several word that made the list were “words that attempt to make something more than it is,” Lake Superior State said. Among those on the list: artisanal, curated and influencer.

Other words or phrases were banished for “pretentiousness or imprecision.” Among them were literally, I mean, living my best life and mouthfeel.
