Over-used words of 2010 from Lake Superior U

This is a great annual list of words that were to prevalent in the previous year: in 2010 they include epic, fail, Obama-, app, and friend (when used as a verb). Follow the link under Course Docs (on the lower right of the blog) ... & see you on Thursday morning in the first class of the semester. (NB: one of the over-used words, "just sayin'", is a good example of Slavoj Zizek's concept of "fetishistic disavowal", or pretending we know what's happening while acting in the opposite way... more in class).
