The New York Times Magazine Gathers More Banned Words

Last week we told you about the list of banned words that Hugo Lindgren had found from the previous editor at The New York Times Magazine. The list included such cringeworthy (that’s probably on the list now that we think about it) words as “celeb” and “hubby.”

At the end of his post, Lindgren then invited readers to submit words they hated, and today the 6th Floor Blog has published the entire list. That’s it on the right, hanging in the Times’ office. As you can see, people submitted a lot of words.

Here’s a few that we agree with:

  • boffo
  • nosh
  • über- anything
  • sammich

Any words you’d like to add?
