We all have our pet hates. Here’s my new one for today:
If you are the administrator of a museum or an art gallery or similar institution you are a CURATOR, from the Latin curare to care for. I read today that a company had curated a selection of different cosmetics for their customers. Are these products for the clergy or do they enjoy an avian connection as in the Curate’s Egg?
- Cohort –have the Romans returned to Britain in units of ten of between 300-600 men in an ancient Roman Legion?
- Reach out (see below!)
- Park it (as in an idea)
- Not appropriate
- Ism’s e.g. Corbynism
Using nouns as verbs:
Overused and misused words
