Most Overused Words

The Top Ten

1 Racist

Whenever I'm done speaking, I'm like "Just please count how many times I said like in that sentence, like" but come on it's natural for humans to say like!

It is annoying when you are referring to someone's race (like "That black kid wrote it") and then people call you racist. Also, if someone asks you if you like the colors white or black more, people will call you racist if you pick either one.

Tell me about it even if you are talking about what your favorite color is and I'm not talking about skin color people will call you this word and it's so damn overused to the point where it has no meaning at all. - christangrant

The word racist is so abused to the point where it haves no meaning anymore.

I went home she was like ugh and I was like oh my god and she's was like my life is so rough like literally like I'm like not joking. This word is the most overused and irritating word because they the word "like" meaning the same thing. - Soulstealer

Like I like can't like stand like people like who like uses like the like word like like - MrGuyDudeMan

Well, is it "like" something or is it really something? It's not definitive and extremely annoying. It reflects both indecision and immaturity.

Like why do people like use word like every five seconds. Like it's getting like really annoying. Like it's not like you like have to like talk like how like I'm like doing it like right now. I mean like stop it!

Why do people use gay and racist so much. It offends me. I'm not a social justice warrior though

It's so misused.

4 Overrated

Everywhere I go in TheTopTens, I see the word Overrated!
I can't go to one single list without seeing this word!

If I see this word one more time, I'LL GO GET RAN OVER BY A TRUCK!

I will always hate this word.

People think it means bad. Just because you hate something...DOES NOT MEAN IT IS OVERRATED! - DCfnaf

5 Swag
6 Retarded

Yeah/yes very unacceptable and infuriating

The Hungarian version of the word retard is retardált. Maybe it's like that in a few other languages as well, and their speakers think there's a suffix in English as well. - Alkadikce

This technically isn’t a real word. You see, the first six letters are a derogatory term for the mentally disabled, and is a noun. It’s like saying your footwear is shoed. It’s stupid. - Cyri

7 Cringe
9 Elitist
10 Twerk

Someone turn Miley into a viral meme right now. - Kwaysar

The Contenders

11 Literally

This should be #2 after the word like.

It's the most overused word. - Deed

(cough) LeafyIsHere (cough) - xandermartin98

12 Actually


13 Awesome

It's very overused, but when thinking of 'limited vocabulary', remember that English if not the mother tongue of every English commenters. - Alkadikce

This word is used more than any word I have ever heard..Especially with the rise of Yoga Studios and their clothes. See how long it takes for someone to use this word..I do live in California by the beach if this matters as to the frequency of usuage.

Hate it, cringe every time I hear it, along with "amazing"-next most overused adjective, especially on fashion reviews

Shows a very limited vocabulary. Listens, or rather absorbs, their children's use/overuse of words.
