Poor Language

Do you ever run across words and phrases that simply irritate you when you read them? Below are a few in my list:

  • exact same (their meaning is exactly the same)
  • root cause
  • ingathering (as opposed to outgathering?)
  • rain event (said by our local weather people)
  • end result (like there’s any other kind)
  • gift (used as a verb to give a present)
  • on the ground (popular phrase, but trite)
  • at the end of the day (boring)
