Professors at Lake Superior State University (LSSU) in the United States first came up with list of words and phrases that people love to hate at a New Year’s Eve party in 1975. It was published on Jan. 1, 1976.
Five decades later, LSSU continues to receive nominations from the public of their own pet peeves about language.
Below is LSSU's 41st annual list of words nominated for banishment by members of the public:
— So
— Join the conversation
— Break the Internet
— Walk it back
— Presser
— Manspreading
— Problematic

— Price point
— Secret sauce
— Vape
