10 thoughts on “3 phrases that have lost all meaning”

  1. This is true of language in general and is independent of communication channel. It is an excellent tool for detecting lack of clue about specific groups. A really great place for investigating this sort of thing is UPenn’s marvelous languagelog blog: http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu

    These language missteps are particularly amusing in corporatespeak and marketing:)

  2. I feel like Epic should have been #1 on this list. “That sandwich was epic , so epic infact I’ll post it to instagam.”

  3. Definitely have to add, “Amazing” to the list. I am so sick of hear that everything is amazing. He’s amazing, she’s amazing, we had such an amazing time at the party….Really? If everything is so damn amazing I must really live a boring life…
