    thus, thus.

    I cannot stand this word. It sounds contrived and I try to use it as little as possible. When I read a piece of text that has a lot of 'thus' usage, firstly I feel as if the writer is trying too hard and secondly it makes me physically sick. The word sounds vile when spoken. I used to think I was clever using it. There's no need to use it.

    Do you like it?

    Braap. Or 'Standard'. Or "Sh1t swig". I have no time for people who use such words.

    "I'm afraid....."
    "that's vile" (especially this one)
    "beg your pardon"
    "ah that's lovely"

    I don't like the word 'squelch'. It's the grossest word ever.

    Thus I try not to use it.

    I like using it because it fits in with the way I punctuate... Not sure if like reading it as much
    And I thought this was going to be a different type of thread, whereby we suggest ours... I'm in a funny mood, so I'm going to answer that thread aswell (:P) with "banter", a word I didn't mind until I met the kind of person who uses it all the time

    I find it quite useful when doing maths if I'm feeling bored of implication signs.

    Banter is one, so over used.

    It's good if you're writing an essay full of "therefores" and don't want to sound repetitive.
