15 words you should stop using

Career advice experts at The Muse have come up with a list of words they recommend you drop from your vocabulary. Removing these words, they say, will make you sound smarter, and your writing will be more succinct, therefore more readable.

But others are suggestions that might make you think. Words like “absolutely”, “always” and “amazing”.
