Argh.

Why do students have to take ten words to say what two words say just as well? And why do they think adding "essentially" to things makes them more "essay-ish"?

The new one I'm seeing is saying such-and-such "is a result" of something, rather than is something. Example: "objects are the result of particles in motion", rather than "objects are particles in motion".

Guh. This is going to be a long few days.
