Hated language #1

I first noticed this word about ten years ago, but it may have been around longer. Orientate, orientated, disorientated. There may be a correct usage for this word but I have yet to come across a sentence where orient, oriented, disoriented would not do the job more neater and betterer.

    more neater? Again tsk tsk - Vik.


Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
