    By Silvertongue - Smith was priority and the rest secondary... For some pistons fans dumars might rot at hell, but for players pistons organization is still " classy". There is more than meets the eye, I guess...

    "you know" is the new "like I said"

    Good press conference indeed. He's actually quite an articulate dude, despite the "you know"s.

    I used to say "you know" a lot when I was young.
    My boss at my first job out of college cured me of using what he called "non-words".
    If you pay attention, almost everyone uses these.

    Words such as "um", "uh", "like" and "you know" are some good examples.

    It is an epidemic among kids these days. My biggest challenge* as a parent right now is trying to purge the "like" and "um" from my kids' vocabulary. It is an arduous process frequently interrupted by the phrase "Sheesh Dad, like I totally get it, stop like hassling me about it."




    * Of course, I feel quite grateful and lucky that my biggest challenge as a parent is that.

    I have been trying to purge the unnecessary "likes" from my own vocabulary. Tellin' ya man, it ain't easy!

    With a 12yr old girl, I'm "like" right there with you Walt. - LOL
    ...and I too am extremely grateful that "like" is my biggest challenge so far!

    I am sure glad that I speak Russian with my 9 and 3 year olds. No "likes" and "uhs" for us so far.

    In spanish there are words like that... "non-words" or "repetitive phrases" It has to do more with hypes or fashion other than something else.... It really annoys me how some of my friends use them very often.

    There are no words or things like that in Russian????

    I say the phrase "right on" so often that I don't even notice.
    ...that's my non-word that I'm working to eliminate.

    I love this one. I use it sparingly but it's great at the right moment.
