I’m sure many of you that use AI chatbots on a regular basis have the same pains when you try to get them to stop using some words. The amount of articles I wanted to read that start with “In the world of” and then avoided is ridiculous.

Here’s a list I made up with what makes AI sound like AI. I also looked around at what other people noticed, since at the end of the day the way I use AI is specific to me. I probably bump into the same words all the time, but that might not be true for everyone. Based on your specific use, you might notice the same words on and on that I wouldn’t see.

I think that anti-AI cheating tools look for these words as well. Sorry to say, but a lot of these words will be avoided by everyone which is a shame since I actually like some of them and would have used them naturally as well.

AI cliches phrases for the first paragraph

  • In the world of – the one I see all the time
  • Realm
  • Delve into – second one
  • Dive into – third one
  • Embark
  • Glimpse into

AI cliches phrases for descriptive and contextual text

  • Bustling – the one I see the most
  • Crucial
  • Landscape (as in “the landscape of”) – I actually think this is used naturally by everyone
  • Navigating (as in “navigating the complexities of”) – same as above
  • Stark – reminds me of GoT
  • Tapestry – I’ve bumped into this a few times, but I like the word so I might not replace it
  • Testament (as in “a testament to”)

AI cliches phrases for the last paragraph

  • At the end of the day
  • It’s important to note
  • In summary/In conclusion/To sum up
  • The result? More people are…
  • To wrap things up

From my university days, I think a lot of these phrases had to be used to conclude your arguments, train of thought, paper and so on. There’s more expressive ways to end an article, but options are scarce so I will probably not overthink this part.

AI cliches phrases – transitional and connective

  • Consequently
  • Furthermore
  • Moreover
  • To that end

I can’t say I encountered these, maybe furthermore but I think it depends on the type of content you write. If it’s to prove something or to directly try to force your audiences attention to your way of thinking or view, I guess you need these. My writing style is more open and I like the story to speak for itself.

AI cliches phrases – efficacy and enhancement

  • Augment
  • Boost
  • Elevate
  • Empower or empowerment
  • Enable or enabling
  • Enhance or enhancement
  • Expedite
  • Fortify
  • Revolutionize or revolutionary
  • Streamline
  • Utilizes (instead of “uses”)

This part is what I found online, can’t say I noticed any of these in my use of AI. A lot of them are used daily in the corporate world (enable, expedite, enhance etc) and I guess depending of your social group, they might seem pompous or not.

AI cliches phrases – abstract and artistic concepts

Acumen, Aion, Alchemy, Apotheosis, Architect, Bloom, Canvas, Chamber, Compass, Confluence, Continuum, Crucible, Dance, Diamond, Diamond-Cut, Echo, Elan, Empathic, Forge, Fusion, Gaze, Genius, Holistic, Horizon, Iron, Iron-Forged, Ironclad, Journey, Kaleidoscope, Labyrinth, Limitless, Mastery, Melody, Nirvana, Odyssey, Origami, Pulse, Quantum, Serendipitous, Silent, Titan, Unbound, Unfurling, Vista, Vortex, Whisper, Zenith

This part is from my online research, I think I noticed an odyssey once and I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a fun word.

Also from my research, I saw a comment that I think summarizes my feelings quite well:

I’d say lean into it. Are we really about to embark on a quest to dumb ourselves down so we don’t sound like AI? AI that was designed to sound well spoken and intelligent using words and phrases humans have been known to use?

It pretends to be us, so we pretend to be something else…

I’d rather not engage in a lexicographical arms race to the bottom.
