we tend to say like at the end of what we say, not everyone and not all the time mind you!

but it would be along lines of

'Yea and I gave her a wee box, like!'

peeps I know say 'ya know?' a LOT after speaking.

its almost like, 'get me?' or in fact they are really giving closure because we do get them and them asking is almost a 'you got no choice' manner. so, get me folks?

I find it interesting. How as, people who come from english speaking countries, have different ways of wording. American slang is much different than what is used in the U.K. The word "fag" for example, in the U.K. means a cigarette. State side, it has a completely different meaning. A cruel and homophobic word, which is meant to demean gay men.

Because, I watch some British programing, on BBC America. I am understanding more of the differences.

I had a teacher in two consecutive semesters who used the word "basically" all the time. On average she used it about 180 times in 180 minutes. Yes, one basically per minute.

The "National Survey of Academic Affairs" cited as a reference at the lower right corner doesn't exist either.
They misspelled "Academy" too as "Acadamy," and "Awareness" as "Awarness."

I just had a customer call, and he'd ask a question, and I'd respond, and he'd say 'do what'?

I don't like it when people make up new words for no reason.
For example 'functionality' or 'drinkablity'.
And then everyone starts using them

To say 'like' about 30 times in one sentence is a regional thing for me, not exclusively a young persons word
