Heh, not sure if this is the right place for this topic, but I guess a kind moderator will move it otherwise Anyways, so lately I've been reading a bit more than I'm used to. For example, I just finished reading two books and have just started reading a third one. Now this probably sounds odd to most of you, but I'm really not that much of a reader; I could probably count the number of books I've read in my life with my ten fingers! I'm digressing. The point of this thread is that I've found adjectives that annoy the hell out of me, and I wish authors would stop using them! And I thought, maybe it would be fun if others joined in and complained about their most hated adjectives, and maybe we will all read this thread and maybe think twice or thrice before using them (lots of maybes... well that just like me...) Or, I guess... we could even debate the adjectives we hate, and maybe someone can convince me or you that our least liked adjectives actually aren't that bad. Anyways, here are the two adjectives I get annoyed at the most: chocolate As in chocolate brown hair or chocolate brown eyes. Maybe I don't like this word because I'm more of a chocolate eater than a reader/writer. But every time I read a character has chocolate brown hair or eyes, my tongue gets this sticky, smooth, sugary feeling, and I see videos of chocolate stirring in various machines. But I definitely never only get the color; it comes with a lot of baggage. Too much baggage in my opinion. jet As in jet black hair. I've never seen jet. And black to me is black. There's nothing more black than black. Unless it's bluish black, or... But jet? I guess my biggest problem with this adjective, is that it's used so often(at least in the books I've read), yet adds nothing. Okay, so those are the two adjectives I get annoyed at the most at the moment. What's yours?
