I find the word “appetizers” very down-market. It’s something one would hear at TGI Friday’s or Pizzeria Uno and I have an intense dislike of the word. It’s too physiological.

The term "appetizers" appears to have been coined nearly simultaneously in England and America in the 1860s, mainly to provide a global counterpart for the French “hors d'oeuvre.” A stylish supper in the 1890s may include both appetizers and hors d'oeuvres.

I have to agree with most of these, because most are examples of unthinking language use, people saying dumb things everyone else says because they're popular. If you're going to make up words, be more creative and entertaining by making up your own words.
And, as my contribution, "moreso." It's not a word. The word is "more." "So" is an adverb. It modifies adjectives and other adverbs, and if you're intending to say that something is "more so" than something else, it has to be clear what that the "something else" is.
"I like my niblings but my kiddos even moreso." WTAF would that mean? What's "so" referring to?
Bonus contribution: "gift" as a verb instead of "give." This is absolutely stupid and everywhere. I'd like to know the linguistic operation by which this happened.

When I started reading the objection, I thought r82 was going to rant about it being concatenated into a single word, not that he was objecting to it completely.
"More so strictly means that to a greater degree, and so recalls an adjective or adverb used earlier. For example, in the sentence, “Gina is studious, and Eleanor is more so,” so recalls the adjective studious, and so is a crucial element of the sentence while more is not. We could change more to less or equally, for instance, and the sentence would still make sense. So because more and so function separately, changing more so to moreso in cases like this is difficult to justify."

r75 Yes, "queer" has been co-opted by the trans and nonbinary types.
But I remember it from college and the 90's, and Queer Nation, when it became the hip alternative to gay.
"Gay" kinda gives me the ick. Sorry, I don't traipse around with a silly smile on my face. We need a stronger word for us than the insipid "gay".
