You've probably heard of the annual "Banished Words List" from Lake Superior State University. It's an annual list compiled at the U.P. university which often reflects society's perspective on overused words and phrases. It's usually good for a chuckle and a momentary reflection on how word usage has changed.

But get this - Wayne State University's "Word Warriors" have their own list - a list of words they think should be used MORE! As you might guess, they are words some might describe as "$64,000 words" - but that's a good thing.

Impress your friends with words like "absquatulate" and "bellicose" - but be sure to use them correctly! Click here to see the full list!

Hear The Richard Piet Show weekday mornings from 5:30-9 on WBCK.
