Is the phrase 'accelerate success' proper english? Any suggested phrases to replace if this is not?

    I'd prefer "expedite" (make sooner) to "accelerate" (make faster), but I've see "accelerate success" often enough as a slogan, I'd say it's gained acceptance.

    Please find anything else. That phrase stinks of marketing buzzword bingo games, ranking right up there with leveraging synergies.

  • No, it is not proper english, because english is the spin you put on the ball in billiards, and this phrase does not put any spin on the ball in billiards. Like, at all.

    Tom: Reg is pointing out that the language English is capitalized.

Syntactically, it's fine.

Semantically, it's jargon.
