Ban 'echo chamber,' 'post-truth,' 'bigly' and 'dadbod'
Northern Michigan's Lake Superior State University on Saturday released its 42nd annual List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.
The tongue-in-cheek, non-binding list comes from suggestions to the Sault Ste. Marie school. It includes ``you, sir,'' ''focus,`` ''town hall meeting,`` ''historic,`` ''echo chamber,`` ''on fleek,`` ''bigly,`` ''listicle`` and ''get your dandruff up,`` seemingly a substitute for ''dander,`` its hair and skin kin.
``Bigly'' also made Merriam-Webster's Top 10 for 2016. President-elect Donald Trump was fond this year of saying ``big league'' but making it sound like ``bigly.''
List of words nominated for banishment by members of the public:
– Bete noire
– Echo chamber
– Get your dandruff up
