Who is this Button for?
'Like' merchants who like over-use and misuse the word 'like' kind of like a bit too often for anyone who like values the English language.
Like what's wrong with like parroting the word like to like describe things?
You are like normal - like you know what I mean?
'Like' is a language condom.
(Rebecca Miller, from film Maggie's Plan)
I'll look to like, if looking liking move:
But no more deep will I endart mine eye
Than your consent gives strength to make it fly.
(Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet)
Words can not express how articulate I feel.
(George Lois, Damn Good Advice (for people with talent) )
Something to consider
There are over a million English words so why always parrot this one?
- The word 'like' is so frequently used colloquially to describe objects and actions that it deserves to be included in all dictionaries as a non-qualifying adjective and non-modifying adverb.
