Types of Things

My history instructor this semester is driving me absolutely nuts. 

She completely lacks a concept of how to efficiently use the English language. She likes to restate the subject at hand—two weeks ago it was the Gilded Age, now it’s Progressivism—every other sentence so there is NO WAY IN HELL we could forget what she’s talking about. She (like so many history teachers) can’t pronounce Laissez-Faire correctly, but sometimes can’t pronounce English words correctly. Today I heard her pronounce forbade like “for-bad.” 

A couple weeks ago, she used ‘infer’ when she meant ‘insinuate’

But none of these are the worst thing she does, because her favorite phrase in the whole wide world is “types of things” and she uses it CONSTANTLY. It gets tacked onto the end of EVERY list of examples, and I’ve even heard her use it when there is no conceivable reason to. Every great now and then, she swaps it out for something like “types of people”. IT IS DRIVING ME UP THE DAMN WALL.
