Grammar Don’ts: Like…Ya Know

Like Ya Know copy

Have you ever listened to  people speak in every day conversation?

Have you ever paid attention to the number of times people said “like” and “ya know” in a given statement?

Have you ever bothered to count the number of times people said “like” and “ya know”?

Like, these two words have got to be two of the most overused words in the English language next tow “uh” and “um.” Ya know?

I’ll admit that I do listen and sometimes count the number of “likes” and “ya knows” in conversations, and have determined that people say either of the words at least three times in a sentence.

What is the point of this article?

My point is to be mindful of your “likes” and “ya knows” in conversation, and PLEASE don’t let them flow into your writings.
