Words that are often misused
People think it means: Any kind of amusing coincidence.
Actually means: An outcome that is the opposite of what you'd expect
This word is commonly used as a substitute for “many,” or “a lot” as in, “we offer a plethora of color choices.” However, plethora actually means in excess, or an overabundance, giving it a slightly negative connotation. “We offer such a plethora of choices that you will never be able to decide on one.”
