Top 10 Most Overused Words

The Top Ten

1 Racist

The use of this word is completely out of control and a crutch for way too many.

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

2 Gay

The correct word for a person who is not heterosexual is HOMOSEXUAL. Gay is a girl's name. It also means "happy".

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

It's so misused.

5 Overrated

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

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

I will always hate this word.

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

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

13 Actually


14 Awesome

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.

Overused by virtually everyone. Can no one think of another adjective?

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.

17 Has
18 Totally

This isn’t an insult. This is a condition that affects social interactions. - Cyri

20 Dude

"Dude, this is like dude so awesome dude come check this out dude! " And I hate it when it's said to me, since I'm a girl not a 'dude'.
