Zeitgeist

zeitgeist ˈzʌɪtɡʌɪst/

noun

the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time.

This word really annoys me because it seems to be overused in the media. I’ve even heard ‘zeitgeisty’, which really curls my toes. Possibly more than the word moist. Maybe it just sounds harsher than it is. I don’t know. It’s just not on my list of favourite words.

Which words curl your toes? which words make you happy?
