I'm innocently sitting at my desk editing an interview that someone else did, and I come across this word: "optionality." As in, "there's a lot of optionality." This drives me bananas. People seem to have completely forgotten how to speak, making up ridiculous words that either aren't words or shouldn't be words. What the person meant was "options" - instead, he came up with "optionality." Oh, brother.
Another one I can't stand is "historical." "Historic" is all you need - the "-al" at the end of the word does nothing to the word, except to make the person using it sound stupid. Yes, historical is a word - but, it's a bad word, just like optionality.
Please, people, let's start talking with intelligently and concisely. We rip various people in the media spotlight for sounding less-than-genius when they talk; let's start living by our own criticism.
