MOST ANNOYING WORD FOR 2017
Can you guess the most annoying word for 2017? Clue: It has been the most annoying word for nine straight years! Drum roll, please! And the winner for most annoying word for 2017 is whatever (*for Americans).
I know about the word of the year but I didn’t even know there was a poll for the most annoying word. I just found about it through an article I saw on my newsfeed.
The annual Marist College poll, where 1,074 adults were given five choices through a telephone survey, was done last November 6-9, 2017. They even shared that the survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
It made me so curious what are the other annoying words on the list. The runners up for most annoying word/phrases are fake news, no offense, but; literally and you know what I mean. For 2016, the runners up were no offense, but; ya know, right; I can’t even and huge.
I have my own list of annoying words but let’s see what happens in 2018.
