    "Horsey" instead of "Knight".  Sounds like a baby.

    Steed is the preferred term.

    It's no worse than the phrase "quantumm leap"

    Another one I hate is "go" as a verb meaning "make a move" or "play", as in "is ready to go e4", which I'm copying from an article in this month's New In Chess.
