I wonder this be linked to typology...
Do you use those "expressions," those useless words that I find so annoying when they are use "in a particular way," which is how a lot of people use them.
- Yea no, I was home.
- He's like fat.
- I don't know, I guess I like it, you know?
- It tastes good, I mean I like it.
- He's so dead.
Personally, I find this utterly annoying and I know I missed a few "expressions." I never do that... But then again, I'm not a native speaker, so maybe I'm not a good subject to compare. On the other hand, native language of mine has at least one similar expression that is used quite often, which I don't use either.
