I know. Still going. No one is more surprised than me.
I am so with you. Also 'leverage' and 'utilise', both of which can be quite happily replaced with 'use'.
I foresee awfully short press releases . . .
Could I add "opportunity" and "unique" to that list?
also "pushing the envelope". And can we widen it to all memos...
But what would you replace them with? Better words, of course:VelveteenBumblingPlenipotentiaryCockatriceShudderPouffe
Yes yes and yes - you are all spot-on.Tim - Bumbling shout be in all press releases by law. In fact, we could rename them 'Bumbles'. Which sounds more accurate, to me.
One of my graduate trainees started a press release with the phrase: "[Global Consumer Electronics Giant] is ecstatic to announce..."She's now been taken off the fast-track and put on tea-making duties until she stops being a spaz.
