Banishing words

Posted by Ed on January 5, 2004

No sooner has the Oxford English Dictionary accepted a word, than LSSU decides to banish it. Ok, so I couldn’t actually find bling bling in there, but MTV says its there, so it must be true.

Yes its the 2004 List of Banished Words from LSSU featuring amongst others, ‘bling-bling’, ‘punked’ and ‘shock and awe’. Actually I’m quite disappointed, having only just learnt ‘bling-bling’ and not yet having had the chance to use it. Oh well.
