    hi

    do you have verbal habits?

    in my case I'm a "hmm"-type icon_cool.gif

    sometimes instead of answering "yes" or "no" I just hmm in diffrent tones and also very often after I end a sentence I "hmm" icon_lol.gif

    And you?

    here , I "uhmm" (actually it's Ừ ) when some people keep talking blah blah blah to me and I dont want to care. I also use it to say "yes" or "no"
    gosh , my language has 6 tones ( a à á ả ã ạ ), each tone has a different meaning ,I dont know how to express that "uhmm" by word tumblr_m5nn3eLsV41rxkaweo1_100.gif

    I have a tendancy to use the world 'vint' a lot, which is the dutch (not really, more of a west-flemish dialect) equivalent of 'dude'.

    I tend to say "yo yo yo" and "sup fellas" when I see a group of drug dealers.

    I say "like" far too often.

    I'm like such a valley girl.

    So what's wrong with meeping. I do it a lot.

    People around me are constantly telling me to stop making up my own prefixed adjectives all the time.

    using " ISH" after words such as early, pretty, hot, cute, ect... is the biggest of "em" all!

    I tend to sometimes accidentally repeat certain qualifiers redundantly. e.g. "Today I'm going to the store today." I don't usually do it when I type, sometimes I do. But it happens more often when I'm talking out loud. icon_confused.gif

    Adding "man" onto the end of many greetings when conversing with a male. My father used to do so and it stuck.

    Funny!! My sister once woke up while napping on the couch and screamed out to those in the same room: "Can't you see some sleeple are peeping?".
    Needless to say...after all the laughter, she did NOT get any more "peep". icon_lol.gif
