At the top of the list: quid pro quo. The Latin phrase got new life during the impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump.

The Sault Ste. Marie school each year invites the public to nominate words and phrases that seem tired or annoying through everyday speech, news coverage and more.

The latest list has more than a dozen, including “artisanal,” “influencer,” “living my best life” and “chirp.

 And in a baby boomer revolt, it's apparently time to scratch “OK, boomer.”

The complete list can be found at www.lssu.edu/banished-words-list/.
