The Nine Most Disliked Words In The English Language

I know there are more words you dislike. I can think of a few!

1. Moist:  It’s the clear winner in surveys conducted by Reader’s Digest and Oxford Dictionaries.
2. Flap:  It can be used to refer to a bird in flight, or extra skin, or…well, you get the idea.
3. Whatever:  Wikipedia defines it as “a slang term meaning ‘whatever you say, ‘I don’t care what you say, or ‘what will be will be.’
4. Dude:  It’s a word that you either love or hate. Those who love the term have made it applicable to any and all situations. But “dude’s” extensive range of uses has made it annoying to non-users.
5. Like:  Used the way it usually is these days, it’s, like, a filler word with no real purpose.
6. Literally:  Another word that people love or hate. Some people use the word literally, like literally way too much.
7. Flaccid:  Oxford defines it as “soft and hanging loosely or limply, especially so as to look or feel unpleasant.”
8. Panties:  The word itself is innocuous, but for some reason, it makes some people uncomfortable.
9. Pus:  It is used to define a thick yellow fluid produced by the body as a response to an infection. No wonder people find it gross.
