Weasel Words

Weasel word – noun : a word used in order to avoid being clear or direct.

Here are a list of words that I do my best to either reduce or elimitate completely from my writing. It helps to keep my work clean and reduces the chance of going into passive voice.

I will continue to add to these as I go along. If anyone would like to suggest a word, please feel free to contact me and I’ll add them to the list 🙂
