Have a nice day.
Another one I noticed is when someone is speaking for the 1st time and they begin their statement with "I mean".

This doesn't aggravate me and I know it's a brain reset kind of deal usually but I can't help thinking how much clearer it would be if they didn't do that.
Are there alternatives? Can i use Literature or Leisurely? How about Larry or Lesley? What about Limousine or Lycopene?

Words or phrases that we would like to stop seeing. I'll start.

Toxic.
Troll is another one. Entitled too. Both commonly used against people a person disagrees with.

Everyone in this forum are literally the most toxic and entitled trolls on the internet. I could care less about all these complaint threads made by people who don't know nothing. All this negativity has a bad affect on people. It's impossible for this negativity to not effect you.

Try grammar policing that!
Literally no

"Prove me wrong."

ugh...
PROVE ME WRONG.
Overusing "literally" is literally a word choice issue, not grammar.

Learn your jurisdiction. An entire paper could be grammatically correct despite overusing a few words.

I've grown to hate when people say "BIG DICK DPS ONLY" - it just sounds stupid. We can think of something better

This forum has made me all but completely despise the words literally and confirmed, due to their continuous misuse. Were it up to me, I would add them to the banned words list.


You're one of them book burning types aren't you?

I literally can't stand those types of people.

Grammer police CONFIRMED.
JaJaJaJaJaJa
Literally, I am literally amazed at how little the literal term is taken literally.

Literally!

Edit: I do often wonder when, based on grammar usage of the word that the definition will change. As language is evolving, the rules of grammar do as well. The word Teached is wrong in most grammar polices books, but it follows in the trend of past tense of other worded like walked, or talked.
