Only Words

There are just certain words for which I have an irritational loathing.

"Deliverable." I can't explain it, I just know reading the very word annoys me.

I think maybe because I have this sneaking suspicion that it's a non-word that the MBAs of the world are trying pass off as a real word.

Kind of like "productize." I'm pretty sure that's not really a word.

While "proactive" and "paradigm" are real words, reading them on a page still makes me giggle.
