1. Pure mathematics
1. Similarly: Two or three lines in this proof are the same as those in the previous proof.
2. Without loss of generality: The author proved only the easiest case.
3. Clearly: The author can show it in half a day.
4. Obviously: The author can show it in three pages.
5. Really obvious: It has an easy-to-understand, but hard-to-find solution.
6. Trivial: It has two easy-to-understand but hard-to-find solutions.
7. Details omitted: The author can't quite show it.
8. In general: The author couldn't find his way around the pathological exceptions.
9. It is not cliff cult: It is very difficult.
10. It is easily seen that: Two Bell Lab scientists took 3 2 years to show it.
11. A simple computation: The Gray super-computer did it in under seven hours.
12. Ingenious proof: A proof that the author could understand. In later papers this proof will be referred to as trivial.
13. A well-known result: A result whose reference the author could not locate.
14. It can be observed that: The author hopes you haven't noticed.
15. The author wishes to thank the referee: The referee's name should appear as the first author.
16. Interesting: Dull.
