• Every word has its appropriate use, even if it is only in one specific instance.
  • Can't - there is no such thing.

      And yet you use it in your comment. Isn't irony a crazy thing...?

  • Bureaucracy. I can barely spell it.
  • The word "try" is one word that I don't use because it is overused. Instead of "trying" for the theater group, one can say "audition" for the theater group. Instead of "try" this recipe, one can say "prepare" this recipe. Instead of "trying" the food, one can say "sample" the food. A train station in my area displayed a huge banner that read "TRY OUT NEW FARE GATES" instead of "USE OUR NEW FARE GATES."
  • Terms like 'why the heck', why the hell' and 'why the whatever...' Why not just say WHY?
  • I try not to use offensive terms for race, gender, sexuality etc.
  • You're stifling your children's freedom of speech by forbidding them to use certain words. You may not like the negative context that some words have, but you shouldn't censor your children.
