Thread: 2021 Banished Word list (including phrases)

  1. #11
    I got one - "absolutely." This word is said by newscasters 1000 times in every interview. This word is said to imply agreement with whatever the person before them has said.

    Person: "The grass is green."
    Newscaster: "Absolutely! I noticed that."

    Person: "You are a jerk."
    Newscaster: "Absolutely! I was going to say that I am a jerk."



    LOL.
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    three (or other suitable number) times smaller/lighter/nearer etc. than

    If you mean one third (or other suitable fraction) of the size/weight/distance etc., just say so instead of trying to reinvent the laws of physics.
    I regard it as fine if the comparison is, for example, three times larger etc. than

    That's a good one.

    I would perhaps use it in dialogue but I would struggle to find a place for it otherwise. There are just some words that really don't sound good in a story.

    Another word I would not use is Wholesome. The site Reddit has a fascination with that word.

    So "The paint is basically oil," would be a correct usage because the paint is oil-based. Or: "She drew basically," would be correct as well since her drawing is basic.

    "Tell me about it," when you don't actually mean "tell me about it", but are merely reinforcing what someone else has just said. I find it acceptable if someone genuinely means that they're willing to listen.

    "Way to go." This one I find irritating. It's not a Brit phrase, but I believe it to be in common use in many parts of the USA. I think it's meant to mean something like "well done". I first heard it from a Texan guy I knew who was living in the UK some years BI (Before Internet). We were all in the pub together and he came out with "way to go" (and added a "man" on as we were all trainee hippies and pissheads). To a dude we asked "WTF you going on about?"
