There are certain phrases that Americans have been using lately, that are annoying. One of the most common ones is the use of the word like. "It's like raining out". Well, is it raining or isn't it?
Then there is "ya know?" "It's like, ya know, raining out". No I don't know, tell me about it.
But the one that seems to be in every sentance is the word basically. (I don't think I need to put that in a sentance for you). When did this word become such an important part of our everyday speech.
If you don't believe me, just watch Judge Judy or The Peoples Court and count how many times they use these words.
Have you noticed a word or expression that has creeped into our language and just annoys the beejeebees out of you?
