Littered and lazy speech

Words we always use even though they add no meaning or value to a sentence are called crutch words. For example, in the sentence “Then I was like, OMG, then like, he went there, and like…” it is pretty obvious that “like” is the crutch word. “Actually,” “honestly,” and “basically” are also commonly used as crutch words.

And then there are the lazy words.  Ones that we repeatedly litter our conversations with.  A good example is the word ‘ nice ‘.  Should you be tempted to use it, ask yourself firstly if there is a more appropriate word instead.  There often is!
