Words People Say That You Find Annoying

Other

So what words do some others say that you find particularly annoying?

Here's mine:

  1. Using the F word in every other sentence - seriously, the English language consists of around 171,476 words, so there's loads of different words that we can use.
  2. 'Just saying' - why do people say this at the end of a sentence? Is it in any way supposed to have an effect on what that person says?
  3. Saying 'like' all the time - eg, 'This is so like amazing because it's like exciting and it's like nearly Christmas'.

The word that I hate is when they say lovie . I keep saying i am not your lovie. Make me what to pull my hair out. And like you you said the f word i know few people that use the f word all the time. Hate taking to them because of the f word. And another thing I hate you are in a supper market and the yell all the way down the aisle. Then they walk down and look you up and then walk off using the f word. And nearly all the time they have young children with them.. these people need to go back to school and learn some manner's. They other day I was in a shop and this little boy of about 4 years old came up to me and used the f word. The mother did not tell him off at all. If that was my boy he would get a telling off. I could go on and on. šŸŒ»šŸŒ»šŸŒ»šŸŒ»

I hate it when people swear in front of their kids. But what is even worse is when they actually swear AT them. šŸ˜

I'm not quite there yet, but I can see the word literally becoming increasingly grating to many people. I seem to be hearing it more frequently, it's often misused or used for the most random reasons.

The 'like' ridiculous use of 'like' 'like' really 'like' annoys me too - mix it with 'totally' and I 'like' 'totally' cringe šŸ‘Ž Another one is scores etc - it can no longer be 10 out of 10 has to be 20/10 or a million percent - I am perfectly happy with 100%! My last one is 'yeah, yeah, yeah' - a singular Yes with an S on the end is fine for me.

Yes! I am in complete agreement about 20/10 & a million percent. People always say I'll give it 110% and it bugs the life out of me! I can't stand 'literally' and air quotes!

I dislike the use of the word "majority" when the speaker or writer means "most". It's almost as if they think it's clever to use longer words then misuse the longer word.

For anyone who has fallen into the trap of misusing the word "majority" it should only generally be used where a number of things are involved. It's often better to say "most" even where "majority" would be in order.

An example it's: "Most of the cake" but "the majority of cakes".

A phrase that "jars" with me is "at the end of the day" unless it's referring to late evening.

I hate 'just my opinion' (it always seems to come after somebody's said something particularly offensive) 'Hun' grates on me. Oh and people sounding out internet acronyms - I can tolerate them on facebook but when they're actually spoken - lol, wtf etc - it puts my teeth on edge!

I have also heard many people say 'puter' instead of 'computer', or 'crips' instead of 'crisps'.

ā€¢ Literally (most people who use this word have no idea what it means)

ā€¢ Basically (same as 'literally')

ā€¢ Patriarchy (same case below)

ā€¢ Sexist (same case below)

ā€¢ Racist (some people who don't agree with someone else's opinion is automatically racist)

ā€¢ Mansplaining (a made up word to belittle men when they're explaining something)

ā€¢ Cisgender (another made up word, this one took me a while to remember ā€” it just really means straight people)

ā€¢ Caucasian (Caucasians are people from the Caucasus region in the Asian continent, not an appropriate way to refer to Europeans)

ā€¢ Titles (when talking about games)

Yeah, the word 'like' too. Folks these days limit themselves to a very tight vocab, or they just like using as is.

I agree with your examples and would add 'literally'.

Also I find that so many people say shtrong instead of strong etc, this applies to most words starting with st....

Sounding an S as SH - is a characteristic of Sean Connery's speech, perhaps it was caused by how his first name is pronounced.šŸ˜€

Agree with the over use of the word like. I hate phrases like 'totes' and the other slang from shows like made in chelsea and TOWIE. I know a teacher who used to ban certain words from being used in their classroom. There was a list on the board.

One thing that has always bugged me is when people say or comment brought instead of bought.

Maybe is a word meaning "perhaps or possibly" I suspect you are confusing it with the two separate words "may be".

I could have said: maybe you are confusing it with "may be" - "maybe" may be a word that confuses others.šŸ˜€ Who think it means "might be". Confusing innit!šŸ˜

'Their'

Everyone these days is a 'their' even if it's just a singular person. 'They' and 'their' makes it sound like it's a group of people rather than just a single one but it's what folks do these days.

In Spanish and Portuguese it's gendered so people say 'eles' / 'ellos' (male them) and 'elas' / 'ellas' (female them).

I prefer to just refer to as him and/or her than their this and their that. Obviously, there's tons of times when 'their', 'they' and 'them' is used correctly but sometimes it isn't.
