I’m literally gutted by The Daily Telegraph, which used to have a safe pair of hands when it came to reflecting my pet hates. The reason? They’ve just published their fairly unique ‘Top 10 Most Hated Words’ list (of both Oxford University research and Telegraph readers)….

…and RANDOM is not on it!

It’s a nightmare! I personally am confronted with this word 24/7, and at this moment in time it is basically the single biggest indicator of limited vocabulary in modern English.

At the end of the day, I shouldn’t of put my faith in the Torygraph (ok, with all due respect its political bias is neither here nor there). Going forward, I hope that the upcoming 2009 list has a new random entry at #1…it’s not rocket science!
