1 : readily or continually undergoing chemical, physical, or biological change or breakdown : unstable
2 : readily open to change

You might say it's not that big a deal to hate that word because when would I have occasion to hear it. When would someone need to use this word? And WHY? It so clearly sounds like you're referring to someone's genitals. A "labile mineral" should look like this.

My friend is a nurse and this term is apparently used a lot in the medical world to talk about things like blood pressure that's high one minute and low the next. Whatever. So this friend decides to move it into commonplace discussions. Like we're talking about her 1-year-old daughter's mood swings. "She's very labile". EW.

What word do you hate?

I hate "hole".

I also hate it when people say "nanner" instead of "banana".

"Purview" makes me think pervert, just from the sound of it.

Stina (stinalee) | 653 comments Years ago, before my sister knew if she was having a girl or boy, we decided to come up with the WORST baby name ever and landed on Labian.

I don't like the word puddle.

I LOVE the word nanner. I do NOT love when people eat bananas in public.

Servius  Heiner genial:

smetchie | 5731 comments easygoing and pleasing. hahaha.

Servius  Heiner I know right.

message 16: by Joanie (new)

Joanie Hate, hate, hate moist too-ugh. Also not a fan of the word panties, especially when men say it. To combine the two would make me puke-moist panties-shudder.

Not quite hating a word but a similar concept- I don't think I could ever own a Volvo, I'd always be afraid I'd say vulva instead-"hi, I brought my vulva to be checked"

smetchie | 5731 comments HAHAHA! I can remember learning there was a car called "Volvo" as a kid. I couldn't believe it. Someone must be pulling my leg, I thought.

smetchie | 5731 comments I hate myself for starting this thread because now every time I open it I have to look at the word I hate in bold as well as a picture of the mental image I'd rather avoid.

I keep trying to think of words I hate, but only think of words I love (like lethargy and pronto and detritus.)

I do know of a phrase I hate with a thousand passions, but if I told, someone would probably start using it around here and I'd have to leave.

I hate the words:

Those are all just based on how they feel in my mouth, though.

I like words that have prefixes and suffixes and and sort of made up. Undebunkable.

I can't remember which word it was that you it labile? Label? Labial? I think labile was the word you hate, but i can't remember and i'm too lazy to scroll to see what it was. Any case, i'll try not to use the words labile, label, or labial anywhere you're likely to see them.
