    pretentious?

    In the chapter Misused Words and Expressions Strunk & White, the timelesss style guide, says on page 55 that the phrase "-oriented" is clumsy and pretentious.

    Struggling time and again with translations suggestions for "sich orientieren" - which has been discussed often here in the forum, sometimes it seems like the only solution is to use -oriented. I agree that it is clumsy. But it is so common nowadays, would it still be considered pretentious?
