First time starting a topic so I hope I have it in the right forum.
This is something that I’m starting to find a little grating, the use of buzz words all the time, be it in everyday conversation or on radio/TV.
The buzz word of the Brian Cowen era was “Going forward”.
The words of choice on shows such as Jeremy Kyle are “at the end of the day” and “basically”.
Some Irish favourites are, “you know what I mean like?”
I heard some debaters on radio the other evening starting a sentence with “we categorically and emphatically…”
What I find annoying now, is the use of “Absolutely” all the time, and the fact that it is now used as a replacement for the answer to any question in the affirmative.
What other words or phrases do you find annoying? (Apart from the obvious “like” of course)
