Words to be wary of!

In response to some to and fro on twitter about ‘go to’ words and ‘weasel’ words, I’ve posted here my list which I’ve developed over the last few years. Am pleased to say I’m more aware these days. New ones do crop up from time to time however! You know you have to do something when you do a search and MS Word says: That shows up quite a lot! (‘Quite’, ironically, being a ‘weasel’ word, ie a qualifier which slows the pace and diminishes the strength of your writing.) Hope someone finds this helpful.
