Smart sounds

An article in today's Advertiser lists 15 words suggested by experts that we should drop from our vocabulary and then supposedly sound smarter.
The words are:

  • That
  • Went
  • Honestly
  • Really
  • Very
  • Amazing
  • Absolutely
  • Always
  • Never
  • Literally
  • Just
  • Maybe
  • Stuff
  • Things
  • Irregardless

I could easily drop half of these words; but I do like the words Stuff, Things, Maybe and Absolutely.
Maybe people would sound a bit smarter, not by dropping some words, but by learning to string words together a bit better. Stuff would sound a lot better; absolutely.

    A sign of the times.
