I am not a fan of casual expressions in language. However, I do like and use a few of them frequently. For instance, the word “cool” – it sounds like awesome and amazing mixed together but without (sometimes) the boast and loudness of the two words. Of course, I use the words awesome and amazing and other words (fantastic, wonderful etc) too. But, cool has this cool ring to it. It is just a very cool word to use. (this one is a longer article)

Ummm…you know… the words that we often you as fillers in our daily verbal communication. I meanlike… they are such an important part of communication and they communicate so much more about us and about what we want to say apart from the words we use to deliver our content.
