Buzzword Bingo

We talk quite a bit here about inflated, trendy language (also a popular topic in Literally, the Best Language Book Ever), but has suggested 24 popular buzzwords that can be turned into a game of buzzword bingo.

The idea is to fill a bingo-like card with annoying catch phrases and mark them off as you hear them in meetings at work, and just like Bingo, the winner is the one who gets five such buzzwords in a row.

Here are a few of the words that would be on their card:

  • incentivize
  • granularity
  • metrics
  • touch base
  • leverage

All good choices!
