    1. You forgot “on balance” and “cool”, you use them all the time too. :)

    3. Steven: I guess we have to suppose that the names of your boys and your bride go without saying aren’t what this FFM was looking for (I’m making my list and my favorite word by far is my dog’s name).

      Clint: if I don’t say “hegemonic stability theory” at least once a day my students start to think that there’s something wrong with me.

    5. I know there are more “Taylorisms” that I can’t think of right now, but Clint is right, “not so much” is a common one.

      I’m still thinking about my list. I was thinking maybe I could just ask the kids, “what words do I use on a regular basis that you don’t really understand?” My oldest son often complains, at the dinner table, that it sounds like what I’m saying should be part of a paper for Dr. Taylor (yes, he mentions you by name), not just normal conversation. lol!

    6. Ah yes, personal catchphrases are a whole ‘nother issue.

      “not so much”

      “all that jazz”

      variations on “doesn’t give a rat’s rear end”

      This list was words that I realy like just for their own sake, yet also use a lot.

      And I am pleased to know that I am affecting the vocabularly level of dinner conversation! :)

    7. And you’re often affecting the topic, too.

    8. A fellow word lover. I’ve always like penultimate also. Here is one that fits your blogger profession – redaction – which is the prcess of editing or revising an article.

      One of my favs is defenistrate – the act of throwing something out of a window. My boss always comes to mind.

    10. Fun words to say and use

      Last week Dr. Taylor, over at Poliblog, posted a FFM that I never found the time to join in on. I thought maybe I’d catch up today. . . Note: Maybe seeing this trackback will remind Dr. T that it is Friday and he’ll do a new FFM for today.
