Our everyday language is funny and lets admit, we speak blatantly without thinking twice. We say the same thing in ten different ways. There are 171,476 words in English and we only use a couple of them to communicate. And most of the time, they sound superfluous and cliche.

I think it’s high time we shake off the habit of using these words.

1. Actually

Actually

It would actually be nice if you start your sentence with something other than actually.

2. Basically

basically

Earlier, basically was used to bring emphasis to simplicity, truth or confidence. For eg, Basically, life is all about change. But it is losing context nowadays. So, basically, dump it before you pump it.

3. Frankly Speaking

frankly speaking

Using the word frankly speaking is like saying, I can be real bad but I’d rather be politically correct than rude.

4. Hmmm

hmm

That’s a conversation killer, reason for the awkward silence, and not even a word. So why?

5. Honestly

honestly

A word which rarely adds honesty to a statement or sentence these days.

6. K

K

K is the symbol of potassium as per the periodic table. Who said it can be used to express your consent?

7. Like

like

Like only looks good when received as an impression on facebook. Period!

8. Literally

literally

This word has absolutely lost all purpose. Like, literally, it has. See? There. I did it.

9. LOL

lol

No one really laughs out loud when he writes LOL.

10. No Offense

no offense

YES OFFENSE! Whenever you begin a sentence with “no offense but…” you know it in your heart that you’re going to say something super offensive.

11. Obviously

obviously

Here is the fun fact: People use this word to emphasize the point with regard to things that are not necessarily obvious.

12. Oh Shit

oh shit

Some people think it’s a very versatile word and can be used in every situation. They also use it to express different emotions like happiness, anger, agony, and excitement.

13. Please

please

Please, for God’s sake, get a life.

14. Seriously

seriously

Like seriously? Do I need to say anything more?

15. Shut up

shut up

If you really want to cut the crap out of your friend, then look for something sarcastically refreshing like put a sock in it, keep it down or button your lips.

16. So

so

It works as a connector between a statement and an explanation but people started using it for almost anything. So, this isn’t cool, right?

17. Whatever

whatever

Whatever is only used when someone starts losing a conversation.

18. YOLO

YOLO

You only live once but not to spam people with such abbreviations.
