Most UJers who post here understand that there should be a modicum of verisimilitude in their offerings, not just so much loud rodomontade and inane badinage, which would make this site merely a cacophanous imitation of other similar sites. That would be utterly flagitious.

Since a few others have added their LEAST favorite words, I would like to add irregardless.

Yes, there's a few irregarding the topic title . . . suspect.gif

Another favorite - Mercurial, "Having the characteristics of eloquence, shrewdness, swiftness, and thievishness attributed to the god Mercury".

I detest the pronunciation of the word "nukular", when it clearly only has two syllables as in "nuclear". But when certain semiliterate politicians utter it, it will be aped by the masses.

All use of the words paradigm and proactive make me sick.  Synergy makes me want to puke too.

A most favorite word is juxtaposed.  We like our shotgun barrels side by side and juxtaposed!, but that is redundant.  Another good word.

Now Ben, some of the mercurial types are probably going to leap upon you for this infringement into the "political" spectrum! :)  :devil:

Ben, nu-cle-ar is clearly 3 syllables.  Merriam Webster may have been a semiliterate polititian.
