bugbear

a cause of obsessive fear, irritation, or loathing


I just used this word in a reply to a comment in the Writing Guide section. For a moment I wasn’t sure whether the correct term to use was bugaboo or bugbear. It turns out that they mean roughly the same thing. Also, apparently I had already used bugaboo as a word of the day almost three years ago.
