cringe

The obvious joke must be said - does that word make you cringe? (Okay, that does not even constitute a joke, I know).

I also do not like vestibule (particularly the bule part - I dunno why though)

Hmmm - I think this may be a bit more revealing about people than ever considered it could be

Impact, impacted or (God help us) impactful. I used to just hate when some self-important corporate twit used them to mean effect, affected or effective. By the time it spread into general use, I just started to hate the words themselves. And impactful isn't even a word.

That can be extended to just about any perfectly good word that has been turned into corporate jargon.

Surgery. Again, I didn't hate this word until people tried to sound smart by misusing it, referring to "a surgery" instead of an operation. Which led to the even more idiotic plural, "surgeries." And to make matters worse, doctors have started saying it. To illustrate the problem, imagine someone pointing at a steel mill and saying "they do metallurgies there."

Which brings me to chiropractic. Perfectly good word, except that it appears to be the full name of this field of medicine. Every time I hear it or see it on a sign, I want to yell "chiropractic what?"

OK, that turned into words I hate on principle, rather than words that just don't feel good or sound good. But I guess they're unpleasant just the same. TeddyR

"Thesaurus"

I've always had a some trouble with "s" and "th" sounds, so that word is a b***h for me to say correctly.

And, on a slightly related note, I hate it when people use double negatives, (ex. "We ain't got no time for that." or "There isn't no paper towels left.") 

I live in Southern Illinois, so I hear that crap a lot.

"Gots" (whenever anyone says it in place of the word "has")

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
