Because I realise language changes constantly I try and reconcile myself to new word usage, but I do find myself irritated by some phrases
that suddenly leap into prominence. In the UK everyone seems to have started using the phrase 'going forward' when talking about plans, policies or anything that's going to happen in the future. It's always totally redundant since plans etc can only
influence the future. Another one is the phrase used about computer software. Every new version of a product these days is built 'from the ground up'......which means what exactly?
