Here is a partial list of words that, after two months in Critic School, I would be pretty happy never to hear again:
There are plenty of others, most of which end in -ic, -ist, -ism, -al, -ian or -ization. They make me visualize hatcheting the skulls of those who utter them (except for Susie, who can say anything she likes). Another possibility is that I am just an intolerant hag and need to lighten up. But I prefer to blame the language of academia, for now.
More globbing soon! Back to the books....
