War of the Words: The Great Buzzword Purge

Posted On: April 29

The English language: a vast and vibrant tapestry of nearly 600,000 magnificent words. Slowly being strangled by a trio of dangerously overused buzzwords. Fear not, fellow wordsmiths! Today, we embark on a noble quest – a crusade to liberate your vocabulary from the shackles of “unprecedented,” “resonate,” and “synergize.” The threat is real. The very fate of the English-speaking world is at risk. But stand strong and be confident because we’re about to replace these tired tropes with a fresh arsenal of verbal weaponry.
