Top Ten Most Misused Words

You keep using that word... I don't think it means what you think it means.

The Top Ten

1 Cancer

I should stop saying this word when referring to cringeworthy stuff.

Went from a disease to just a synonym for overrated (which itself is frequently treated as a synonym for bad).

The internet has gone downhill because of morons using diseases for things they hate or description of what they think is awful.

Cancer is a serious disease people are suffering from. Not a way to describe anything you hate.

2 Literally

It's a pet peeve of mine when people do this :
Literally is literally way overused to the point where it literally isn't even funny anymore. I get people literally use it to emphasize something but can you literally stop using the word literally? It's literally annoying.Litterally.

People say this word when they are run out of ideas and have to think, but at the same time find silence shameful

“My head is literally falling off of laughter!”

Jacksfilms likes making fun of this word... Literally

3 Like

Like, I was like, this word like, drives me mad.

Like is when you say you enjoy something, not to fill in any thought

I hate when people overuse the word like. It's like so annoying.

I might use it every now and then but not too much because that gets like annoying

4 Gay

Gay used to mean happy. Not homosexual. Then the word became another word for a homosexual. And now it's just an insult.

Gay is when you are attracted to the same gender. Not everything on God's green earth you don't like.

Gay is often used to insult someone too in the way its supposed to be used as well. I think that's the real crime.

Imagine calling something you hate gay.

5 Random

Random means an unbiased and undecided selection out of a few choices. It does NOT mean weird.

It does mean strange and unusual, but it’s informal.

6 Dumb
7 Autistic

Why is it all the way in the bottom, this deserves to #1 or at least #2 since cancer is there

The misuse makes me hate the fact I have this...

They use this as an insult! This should be #1

8 Ignorant

Ignorant = not know or know little
Ignorant =/= ignore

9 Cringe

Annoyingly Overused But Meh

Assumed definition: A noun to describe something bad
Actual definition: A verb that describes when you look away in disgust

10 Empathy

ALWAYS to get empathy and sympathy confused. Empathy I think is the one where you understand someone else.

This is probably the most important skill to have in life in general.

Sometimes I get it confused with sympathy.

The Newcomers

? Overhated

The exact same meaning as underrated, but this word doesn’t actually exist.

The Contenders

11 Overrated

Overrated means popular, not bad. I hate it when people misuse the word. Instead, use either the words bad or terrible to describe something bad.

On the list of overrated cartoons, a visitor said that Breadwinners is "even more overrated than Sanjay and Craig". Breadwinners sucks, yes, but it barely has any sort of fanbase.

Okay big misconception here: Over-Rated: means that something has received excessive attention than what one believes it deserves. It does NOT mean something is Bad!

In my opinion, The Beatles and Queen are overrated, but I still love both bands. Justin Bieber can’t possibly be overrated because literally everyone despises him. He’s underrated.

12 Your

Example: Your so cool.

13 Racist
14 Inflammable
15 Slut
16 Hate
17 Communist

The word is often slung around by hardcore right-wing nutcases to insult us liberals.

18 Kinda
19 Fascist

To be honest I don’t think anyone knows what a fascist is.

20 Humility
21 F****t
22 Mean
23 Punk
24 Weeaboo

It just turned into an insult directed at anyone who enjoys anything Japanese.

Idiots, you DON'T want to call/refer yourself as a 'weeaboo'. Just say '______ fan' because that's not what Weeaboo means. You're really just insulting yourself otherwise =/

25 Whore

'i h8 Dawn because she is a whore!'

Pokemon is a CHILDREN'S show. Even in Japan, I'm pretty sure they won't have a child (TEN YR OLD) prostitute in it

This is done for $$$ not just pleasure
