My Most Overused Words in Library School

– basic/basically
– hopefully

– information
– interesting

– maybe
– probably
– useful

I can be a decent writer sometimes but man, those crutch words will kill a paper! On the other hand, there are some words and phrases I should use more in library school…
– cutter
– fake drool
– “Go Google yourself!”
– “Is Dilbert a scholarly source?  Sure…”
– monograph-tacular
– socialist hegemony
– specific vroom-vroom
– “yes, I'll have another pint, thank-you.”

    I have something to add (keep in mind, it's the middle of the night and I'm writing a paper RE: bitter) but, for the 'Most Overused' category, I give you: Ameliorate.
    You hit the nail on the head with “Information” though.

    Michelle, that's a good word and David, that's a good phrase. My list is definitely a starting point only – there are probably many more words and phrases that I could add. For example, another word I use (but shouldn't) is “disconnect”. Another phrase I don't use but wish I did = “I hurt my Dewey”.
