I am continually annoyed, when listening to otherwise interesting podcasts/videos/news items- even live people- . to hear the word 'like' inserted between every other word. I thought this would be a passing phase - mostly a teenage habit - but it seems it is pervasive and knows no age barrier. Where did it come from? How is it that some people seem to grow out of the habit and others don't? Is there anything that can be done in terms of influencing trends on 'social media' to help eliminate the redundant use of the word?
Hello Annie, the word ''like'' can be inserted as a neuro suggestion to ''sway'' ones opinion in the direction of liking something , you know like!
Great topic, @annie123 - the other one is starting every sentence in an interview with "So...", both on the part of the interviewer and the interviewee...
