Word-watchers at Lake Superior State University in Michigan is out with its latest list of words that should be banished because they are overused.
On the list are: "selfie" and "twerking." Also making the list to purge are "hashtag" and "Mr. Mom." The school has been putting out the list since 1975 - and the list has grown to more than 800 words.
