irritating new words

    I have noticed recently that some new, and to my mind , irritating, words are becoming increasingly prevalent,. Two examples ---- "get-go" instead of start, and "uptick" instead of increase. I have seen and heard these used on mainstream media now. I cringe when I hear them. :(
