American sh*te.
So many **** terms in IT now, We've a rake of consultants in at the moment, and they're hilarious.

"On-board"

"Socialize"


"Orchestration"

"Go on a journey"

We had one genius today actually come out with the terrm "See to the horizion and then beyond that" I had to bite my tongue

..just north of...'

Nothing is ever 'just over' or 'just above' anymore.

Other nouns to verbs:
"headquartered" as in "Company X is headquartered in Dublin."
I've heard "officed" also.

"Reaching out" is gaining popularity. In place of "contacted/emailed/phoned".
I've been hearing it on RTE radio1 recently.
It has its place when referring to canvassing a community I suppose but not when it means emailing an individual.

Once again .. bloody americanisms!

Even though not strictly new words, I find the new usage of "conversation" rather than debate or discussion, and "journey" referring to a life event etc, rather irritating. Also why does everything have to be "absolutely amazing" ? .I was watching a TV soap, and the boss said to her employee "would you like to take your lunch break early? " "that would be amazing" she replied.

I hope you don't mean the perfectly acceptable take-away food.
Now being replaced by take-out and to-go.

You mean takeaway as in conclusion or implication I suppose.
Which reminds me of the awful "a big ask".
