People used to say the word Paradox more. Others

Was noticing some words that have fallen into disuse. Paradox is one. "hyperactive" is another- people used to say it all the time. Now they say hyper or ADD. I'll think of more. Phone Post

AOL. Definitely a word going out of use. lol

Paradox is out of use because it has few actual uses. People don't want to say long words so they shorten them, hence "hyper". Phone Post

Hyper active was the term used before they educated people about ADHD and ADD(now called ADHD Inattentive).

People tend to over-diagnose and assume people who are high energy "must be" ADHD. Like many words, it becomes overused or exaggerated. Phone Post 3.0
