Fewer refers to quantity, or something that can be counted. (Jenny has fewer quarters than Sally.) Less implies mass, volume or amount. (Sally has less money than Jenny.)
Definition: slang meaning about to, going to (usually Southern)
The phrase is common in some dialects, but is nonetheless colloquial. Instead, use "about to" or "going to."
Definition: cheerful or merry; homosexual
When referring to an object that's cheerful or an openly gay male, this term is acceptable. Do not use it as a synonym for "lame." It's both potentially offensive and a misuse of the term.
Definition: an extremely large number; a lot
Technically, it's not a nonsense word. It has its place (for example, when you know it's a lot, but have no idea how many). But in discussions relating to business, it's unprofessional and hyperbolic.
Definition: extremely huge
It can be a well-placed adjective in informal speech to make a point, but in a professional setting, it sounds juvenile. Try gargantuan instead.
While this word is most commonly used in the U.K. (it's a fun one that's making an appearance in the U.S.), it shouldn't be avoided overall. But note that it's not God-smacked.
Definition: positive, pleasing
Good is a good word... unless you mean well. You do good work. (Adjective) You mean well. (Adverb)
Got is the past tense of get. At no time is there a reason for it to be plural.
Definition: to estimate with little or no data
Guess-timation has no place in a serious conversation. It's a fruitless exercise as it's based on a total lack of information in the first place. If it's based on knowledge, evidence or at least some data you have, it's just an estimate.
Definition: vertical length
You'll note that there's no H after the T. It's HITE, not HITETH.
