Dave, it’s not only Americans. I know some Scandinavians that are fond of using the word “utilize” a lot too.

The dark side of my soul wonders if it is because the rest of the sentence they’re using it has no real message to get across, so replacing the plain “use” with the heavily belled-and-whistled “utilized” makes the sentence carry a deeper message. Of course that message is open to interpretation…
