Editorial comment from Matthew Steeples Our editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

All lounged out

The misuse of the word “lounge”

 

“Lounge,” to my mind is a word that conjures laziness. “Lounging around” is something one did as a teenager and in the process annoyed one’s parents and school teachers.

 

An airport lounge

“Lounge” is a word that is often misused in other contexts. When I think of a “lounge,” I link it to either an airport or railway station. It is somewhere to sit whilst waiting for something else to occur. It is a place to wait for a plane or train but more frequently one finds it being used, especially by estate agents, to describe the main entertaining room in a house. In my view, a better description of such a space might be, in a casual context, a “sitting” or “living” room or, more formally, a “drawing room.”

 

Let’s stop “lounging around” and learn to use the English language properly.
