vertex

In particle physics, an interaction point (IP) is the place where particles collide. One differentiates between the nominal IP, which is the design position of the IP, and the real or physics IP, which is the position where the particles actually collide. The real IP is the primary "vertex" of the particle collision.

very

Don't use it – it's usually redundant. Just think of a better word. Not “very big”, but huge, vast, etc. Not "very small" but tiny, minute, etc.

The exceptions are when "very" is used to mean "actual; precise" as in those were his very words, or to mean "without addition; mere" as in the very thought made her shudder. Those uses are fine.

See forbidden words.
