“Gluten free” or “sugar free” on products which would never contain either ingredient in the first place.

Might as well add E. Coli free, but that’s not a buzzword, and is less certain in food products...

Weasel word

Is that a buzzword, or a description of some buzzwords?

Mars Rover

Even the BBC is at it: "Going forward, this means that much of the management of the rover ..."

Nominal

It means everything is going according to plan with no surprises.

For most people in a similar situation, it means, “We are thrilled that everything is going so well!”

Rife in Texas was, I'm going to go ahead and . . .

The issue with me was the number of times it was said in one conversation.

We must have had, 'Bear with me' from a telephone operator. How many times I've bitten my tongue to stay out of jail.

I suppose it would be wrong to ask if she meant, “Do you want to go bare with me?”

Yes it seems that "roadmap" is used by all sorts of people from the PM down where "plan" is what they mean and would be clearer.
