"Whenever a student uses the word 'fantastic' to describe anything it is clear that they have switched their brain off and are simply writing on autopilot to fill a word-count" said a spokesman for the department.
"The word simply means 'like a fantasy' - in other words, they are implying that the thing does not really exist. If they can't find a more meanigful word, there is no place for them in our English department."
Arthur Chamberlain, professor of English at St Michael's College, Oxford, said "This is awesome. It will bring about a fabulous improvement in students' use of English."
