Top 10 PC words for 2005

The Global Language Monitor has published their 2005 top politically correct words for 2005.

The winner is the BBC’s use of “misguided criminals” for “terrorists”. “Thought Shower” for “Brainstorm” is 3rd.

No 5 might come from NZ – the use of “out of the mainstream” to describe the ideology of political opponents!

“Deferred Success” for “Failure” is No 6.

And from our neighbours down under we have at No 10 the Australian Parliamentary Service banning use of the word “mate”
