  1. Many of these can be considered “Pushbutton Phrases” — derived from the definition of “Pushbutton Word” in the SFWA’s Turkey City Lexicon: A Primer for SF Workshops .

    Pushbutton Word [Phrase] :

    Words used to evoke a cheap emotional response without engaging the intellect or the critical faculties. Commonly found in story titles, they include such bits of bogus lyricism as “star,” “dance,” “dream,” “song,” “tears” and “poet,” cliches calculated to render the SF audience misty-eyed and tender-hearted.
