Op- I don't know if this applies to you but I wanted to put it out there just in case it rings true for you.
There is a condition called misophonia, the way you describe hating the sound of particular words reminder me of this. I have this condition but not
for word sounds - more for eating and mouth noises.
Here is a quick wiki definition:
Misophonia, literally "hatred of sound", is a neurological disorder in which negative experiences (anger, flight, hatred, disgust) are triggered by
specific sounds. The sounds can be loud or soft. The term was coined by American neuroscientists Pawel Jastreboff and Margaret Jastreboff and
is often used interchangeably with the term selective sound sensitivity.
People who have misophonia are most commonly angered by specific sounds, such as slurping, throat-clearing, people clipping their nails, brushing
their teeth, chewing crushed ice, eating, drinking, breathing, sniffing, talking, sneezing, yawning, walking, chewing gum, laughing, snoring, typing
on a keyboard, coughing, humming, whistling, singing; saying certain consonants; or repetitive sounds. Sufferers may experience such physical
symptoms as sweating, muscle tension, and even quickened heartbeat. Some are also affected by visual stimuli, such as repetitive foot or body
movements, fidgeting, or movement they observe out of the corners of their eyes; this has been termed misokinesia, meaning hatred of movement.
Intense anxiety and avoidant behavior may develop, which can lead to decreased socialization. Some people feel the compulsion to mimic what they hear
or see. Mimicry is an automatic, non-conscious, and social phenomenon. It has a palliative aspect, making the sufferer feel better. The act of
mimicry can elicit compassion and empathy, which ameliorates and lessens hostility, competition, and opposition. There is also a biological basis for
how mimicry reduces the suffering from a trigger.
I had not heard of this condition until several years ago, but I've dealt with it since I was about 10. There are treatments - cognitive therapy for
some and special white noise producing earplugs for others. I've gone the earplug route as I'm not much of a navel gazer.
Anyway, I don't know if this might be the source if your discomfort but I wanted to offer the information just in case. Your rant sounded familiar!
Here is more info if you are curious:
