UNICORN, EMPOWER, OVERWHELM: HAMISH THOMPSON'S TOP-10 LIST OF ANNOYING JARGON

By Kathleen Rake

At Houtson PR, author Hamish Thompson shares his "list of the most annoying pieces of jargon." Of the top 10 he listed, #7 has been in my top 3 since the 1990s. My #1, which has no mention anywhere in the article, is the word overwhelm, when used as a noun.

And while unicorn was not on the top-10 list, I was sorry to see it cited under the "Other (please specify)" category because some may confuse the beautiful mythical creature with the other one.
