New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 2, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 16 New Braunf els July Bloom County Dear Abby DEAR ABBY A million thanks for pointing out the irritating speech habit that so many of our young people exhibit I refer to the use of you know three and four times in one It is simply maddening to hear you you you from so many of our celebrities especially athletes while theyre being interviewed on television and I started to fall into that habit when I was in One of my professors helped me overcome it when every time I said you he interrupted me I dont know until you tell Please print If every one who is guilty of the you know habit would ask a friend to interrupt him I dont what a blessing it would NO MORE YOU KNOWS DEAR NO MORE I could fill a column with responses to the column on sloppy speech And I think I will DEAR ABBY I dearly love the English but it appears that either our English teachers arent teaching or their students arent I am appalled at the number of teenagers who use the verb goes instead of Example in point Butch and I were discussing this and Butch But you promised youd do Then I I changed my So Butch Thats not fair a promise is a Then my mom Will you kids stop fighting and I We arent please point out that goes is meaning forward motion in not We are producing a nation of imbecilicsounding youths holding bachelor degrees And they cant spell either v IN PHOENIX DEAR ABBY Hooray for Tired ofOK in Arizona who complained about the annoying habit so many people have of terminating every sentence with OK as though it were a I am also tired of hearing right tacked onto every sentence when no question is For John is telling Jane what happened the other day I picked up my kid right Then she asked if Id mind stopping for a few minutes at the right So I stopped at the right what is the point of ending every sentence with a Sign me RIGHT IS WRONG IN MAINE DEAR ABBY Thank Gail of who is tired of hearing the word basically used and overused My family and I have made a game of counting the times a person uses basically in one speech or I have counted as many as eight It means as a basis for or fun but its now used as a filler and means My prize story concerns a prom inent athlete who was asked in a television interview where he was He I was basically born in New Need I say more Another pet peeve of mine is the incorrect use of the pronoun my There are several rules that but the simple one never use myself when the pronouns I or me can be used JEAN IN MASON IOWA DEAR ABBY I was happy to notice in your column that someone mentioned the overuse of the word Please add my com plaint to the overuse of the word Whatever happened to the per fectly good adverbs entirely and TOTALED BY TOTALLY DEAR TOTALED While were on of their abuse and the one word that I hear more fre quently used incorrectly than correctly is Many people is very as though apropos meant It It means re pertaining to or I have heard this error committed by clergy persons and literate people who should know but 4 DEAR ABBY You frequently tell a Your letter made my day listen to After miles of avoiding tailgating trucks and speeders hurrying
