Nipping in the bud

I'm not usually one who gets annoyed at neologisms or new words. I don't froth at the mouth every time someone says 'blog'. It seems like a reasonable word to me. Even borrowed words like schadenfreude seem to me to have their uses.

So it sort of surprises me when the latest hip word of the second, 'wunderkammer' grates on me hideously.

No, I'm serious. No more of that one. Kill it before it spreads any farther. It's a really annoying and linguistically silly word. By the time it hit boingboing.net, it was already too overused.

It's over. Go home now.
