    Hi Clare, Thank you for your kind words. Not only is your guest post excellent, it is useful. We writers can send it to potential clients whose web sites are full of s********, if you know what I mean.

    Oh, please do send to any clients. If I can help to eliminate this word for once and for all, then my life’s work will be complete!

    Clare, I love your rant. I share your feelings exactly but don’t have your nerve! What are your thoughts around the word…..around? As in, “Let’s have a meeting around that.” Jody

    Thanks for popping by, Jody.

    I’ve never before heard the vile little expression “have a meeting around that”. However, I have been planning to follow up on yesterday’s post about the preposition “into” with another on “around”, so do swing by next week. Your example will certainly be included in my discussion!

    Never heard “have a meeting around” either, unless it continues something like “the water cooler” or “that coffee shop with ungrammatical menus.” 😛
