List Rules Words that are used commonly in everyday, casual conversation, not corporate buzzwords or industry-related jargon.
List of the most overused words of 2013 and the most annoying slang of the year–pretty much all the words we need to stop using in 2014 are included on this list. Whether or not these words originated in 2013, they were all completely overused by the masses and should probably be retired. So what was the most used word of 2013? The worst words of 2013 are closely tied to things we love in popular culture, such as selfies and twerking. (Okay, maybe there is a love/hate relationship there.) They are words that start as a joke because they are fun to say, for example, "amazeballs," but are then taken too far.
This year, there was a strong crossover between Internet-speak and the way we talk IRL (that's "in real life," if you didn't know.) Things such as #hashtag, This., and Because... started as a way to share information online and then leaked into our everyday speech patterns. Vote on the most annoying words, 2013 edition, and add any overused words that you can't stand.
