Question of the Day

Suggested via email by Shaker PatC: Which frequently misused word is like nails on a chalkboard every time you hear it being misused?

PatC cites "iconoclast" as her berserk-making entry. Given the last two years, I've got to go with "maverick"—because no one who uses that word actually seems to know what it really means.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
