Every year since 1976, the university has produced a silly list of words and phrases that it says should be retired.
Topping this year’s list is “wait, what?”, which the university said “should not go together under any circumstances”.
Also included on the list for 2021 is “you’re on mute”, which the university says is because “after two years working online, we should all know where the mute button is”. Other words and phrases to have topped the list in the past few decades include “chill out” (1980), “LOL” (2004), “epic” (2011) and “swag” (2015).
What words or phrases do you think should be banished?
