Banned Words Detector (Lake Superior State University List)

While looking for lists of weasel words and other inappropriate words, I discovered the Lake Superior State University List of Banned Words.

This is a high subjective list and some are clearly ambiguous. I had to edit the list because it is has many entries that are not words or phrases, but descriptions of the kinds of things that should be banned. I also had trouble with the use of hyphens ("car-jacking" vrs."carjacking",). This should give you a good idea, though.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
