5 Modern Words I Hate

Hello everyone. I love language and the written word in particular ( I write a blog, therefore I am a writer). I have always loved reading  and am never happier than when I have my nose buried in a good book. Also because I’m a bit deaf, the written word has give me access to things that I would otherwise miss out on, subtitles on the telly being a prime example.

The history of words fascinates me too. Language is not static, it is an active thing that grows and changes over time. Popular forms of entertainment and media  have always had a great influence on language, just look at the way Shakespeare influenced  modern language. Seriously, check out This Page  to see how many of the phrases we use today were penned by the Baird.

Today the internet has a huge influence on language. Every year new words are added to the English dictionary that  started their life on the internet. Many of these words are fabulous, for example in August 2015 the words Manspreading ( when a man spreads his legs while sitting on public transport) and Hangry ( the anger you feel when hungry) were added to the Oxford dictionary.
But  by the gods of Twitter, there are certain new words  used regularly on social media  that make me want to rip my eyes out  ( ok, a slight exageration, but I really do not like them).

Bae

Meaning – Babe or Baby
Bae is actually an acronym, Before Anyone Else.  I suppose it can be seen as quite a sweet sentiment, but really……No.  There are plenty of soppy sweet words that can be used for a love one, this one is just not needed.

Totes  

Meaning – Totally
Totes is an example of a shortened version of a word. These shortened words are becoming more popular these day. Other examples include Emosh (emotional) and Wel Jel (well jealous). The words have entered the English language due to  programs like T.O.W.I.E. I will admit I’ve never seen the program, but I’ve  seen  Joey Essex, Mark Wright and Gemma Collins on various different TV shows, and I do like them (how could you not like Joey, he is like a puppy). However the words they use are  regional adaptations ( Essex speak) and have no place in written language. So unless you were born in Essex,  live in Essex and are speaking to someone else from Essex please stop using them.

Hack 

Meaning – A Tip
Hack is a word that has many different meanings. It can be a nasty cough, a rough heavy blow, an unqualified professional or even to gain unauthorised access to a computer system. What is does not mean is a tip or shortcut. And yet the internet is awash with ‘Life Hacks’ these days. Tips for getting things done quickly or cheaply. While I’m not adverse to finding new ways of doing things that might save me a bit of time, please just call them what they are, tips!

Gawjuss

Meaning – Gorgeous
Gorgeous is a fabulous word. Just look at all those vowels. In the olden days ( before spell check) people may have accidentally spelt it wrong, but there is no excuse, NONE at all for this spelling of the word. It is a deliberate dumbing down of the english language, and I am happy to admit I will don my Judgey McJudge hat and cast sentence on anyone who uses it.

Cray Cray

Meaning – Crazy
I have saved the worst one till last. This is a word that beyond all others that I hate.  I understand that any word that’s used to talk about someone’s mental health can be used in an insulting way, but this particular word, which is often used by people in relation to their own or other peoples depression or anxiety seems ( to me) to be particularly bad. It reminds me of the type of speech that some adults used with very young children ‘oh was my itty bitty baba feeling a bit cray cray today’. It has no place in adult conversations about  serious and debilitating conditions.

 

So these are the five words in the modern English language that I hate the most.  This is of course just my personal opinion. Are there other words you hear regularly that you really don’t like? Do you use any of the words in my list?

    I am guilty of using the word hack instead of ‘tip’ or ‘trick’. Once again I suppose that’s the tabloid journalist in me…or hack!! #picknmix

    I must be really out of date. I have not heard most of these. I guess language is always going to evolve and it is probably harder the older we get to feel okay about the new words coming out. #picknmix

    Never been able to stand the word gawjus – purely for the spelling alone. I just don’t get the point. Bae needs to be put under a rock, hidden in a corner of the far universe and never found. I particularly hate ‘swag’ too. Haven’t a clue of the meaning. I just know its a firm no.Another brilliantly written and interesting post! #bloggerclubuk

    1. Hooks and Dragons

      October 12, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      Im not sure what it means in modern language, I think traditionally it was what a burglar stole from a house x

    My least favorite word on this list is Bae. I absolutely loathe that word. Because while most people use this term for their partner, if I’m going to call anyone my bae, as in, before anyone else, it will be my kids so it makes no damn sense to me. Just say babe for crying out loud. And while hack doesn’t bother me, the other words on this list just suck! Maybe we are getting too old, LOL! Not! Great post Tracey!

        October 12, 2016 at 3:49 pm

        I call people babe all the time. Just not Bae. That word is just stupid

          Agreed. I also agree that awesome is an awesome word 😆

    Ha! Brilliant idea for a post! Now I need yo make sure I don’t use one of your 5 words in my comments! I do agree with these, though. I love words and when there isn’t a word to sum up how I feel, I make one up. Like ‘Phwah’. Phwah is when you feel a bit fed up and apathetic…It’s like a verbal sigh! Thanks for sharing. #fortheloveofblog

    The two words I hate on this list is Totes and Bae. I see bae said all.the.time on my Facebook and I can’t stand it! I’m sorry but if I’m going to call anyone bae, it’s going to be my kids because they come before anyone else, and I DON’T CALL THEM BAE! It’s such a stupid little word. Whenever I hear totes I think of valley girls and how they talk. Its so superficial but it has also become a very common word among American teenagers so even though I hate hearing pass an adult’s lips, I understand that teenagers have their own words, as we did when we grew up. I still say awesome all the time, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. LOL! #bloggerclubuk

    As a teacher I have to deal with so many of these. I have actually made peace with most – language fluctuates so much I have come to terms with the idea that words I love will have their meanings gradually change and others will come along. It’s part of the beauty if language, even though some are definitely so irritating! I hate hack! It’s not a hack! It’s just a tip! 😉 #BloggerClubUk

    Haha! I also hate all of these words! Although I have said ‘totes’ in the past (in an ironic way, of course). I used to think ‘bae’ was a weird shortening of ‘babe’ …

    My sister just messaged me to say her teenage son now says ‘are you airing me?’ which, apparently means ‘are you ignoring me?’ Why?!!

    Those are some good bad words Tracey! I am potentially guilty of a few of the TOTES annoying ones but here in Kent we are a stones throw from Essex and the accent often gets confused. My late pet tortoise Joey Essex was Totes amazeballs…
    The other four aren’t in my vocab. Does vocab count as shortening a word?!

    Oh now I am winding myself up into a rage thinking of words I hate. My least least favourite is when you message someone you don’t know (when flogging something on facebook for example) and they call you ‘hun’. Argggh hate that!!!!! #fartglitter

    “Bae” *shudders* I am so pleased that you included it as at least I now have an understanding of what it means, so that I can make sure that I DON’T use it in context.

    Agreed on all counts. They are not words. They are at best irritating noises.

    I could have written this list. Every time I see any of these words I cringe. I had to ask what “cray cray” meant as had no clue and you make a very valid point about it not being the nicest one out there. To me hack means to break into someone’s IT system!! My hubby works in IT 🙂 lol. x #fartglitter

      I remember as a child always hearing tabloid newspaper reporters being referred to as hacks. Your very lucky having an IT hubby xx

    I too love the English language and really don’t mind if it changes organically but the internet dumbs down words fir brevity, and that’s where it should stay. I quite like hack, I first saw it years ago on a page that collected Ikea furniture hacks. People buy something such as a Billy bookcase and transform it into something wonderful.

      Oh I like the idea behind hacks, but the word itself less so xx

    ‘Totes’ I HATE this word and if I ever use it on my blog you can rest assured it’s because I’m taking the pee pee. Never heard of ‘cray cray’. Isn’t it quicker to say crazy? Now I keep hearing Shakin Steven’s singing ‘You drive me cray cray-zeee’ lol And thanks for clearing up the ‘bae’ thing as I was wondering ;). X
