Can you guess the 2011 most Irritating Word?

Can you name the most annoying word? For the third straight year~the winning irritating word is..."whatever". A poll conducted by Marist College Institute for Public Opinion said that 4/10 people responded that "whatever" is the most annoying word to hear in a conversation. Close runners up for disliked words included "you know" and "like".Might be an interesting activity to ask students to make a list of words used in conservation that they dislike hearing.

Happy Holidays to you all at Education World Community-Merry Christmas~ Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa!
