What I can't stand is business-speak. Synergize, incentivize, value-add, actionable, coopetition. ICK.
Aaaauugh! Every time I see the word "incentivize," I want to scream at the person who used it. "Why the ugly neologism? What's wrong with encourage, persuade
, or motivate
? And "disincentivize" is even worse.
"Coopetition"? That's a new one on me.
