Don't fail! Just defer success

Global Language Monitor lists the top politically incorrect words for 2005.

Sample these:

"Misguided Criminals for Terrorist:The BBC attempts to strip away all emotion by using what it considers neutral descriptions when describing those who carried out the bombings in the London Tubes."

"Thought Shower or Word Shower substituting for brainstorm so as not to offend those with brain disorders such as epilepsy."

"Deferred Success as a euphemism for the word fail. The Professional Association of Teachers in the UK considered a proposal to replace any notion of failure with deferred success in order to bolster students self-esteem."

"Womyn for Women to distance the word from man."
