Least Favorite Word:

impact
This word, as a verb, has become ubiquitous as a cop out when the writer or speaker is unsure whether to use "affect" or "effect". Moreover, it is so widely used that its meaning has become vague or, worse, ambiguous (e.g.,does the user mean "ameliorate" or "improve"?). There are so many words available which would render a much clearer sense of the user's intent, that it would be wise to steer clear of this word. But if the user wants to sound like an ignorant or waffling bureaucrat, so be it!
