New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 2, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 10    New    Braunfels    Herald-Ze/funy    Tuesday, July 2,1985 Bloom County Dear Abby DEAR ABBY: A million thanks for pointing out the irritating speech habit that so many of our young people exhibit today. I refer to the use of “you know” three and four times in one sentence. It is simply maddening to hear “you know, you know, you know” from so many of our celebrities (especially athletes) while they’re being interviewed on television and radio. I started to fall into that habit when I was in college. One of my professors helped me overcome it when every time I said “you know,” he interrupted me with, “No, I don’t know until you tell me.” Please print this, Abby. If everyone who is guilty of the “you know" habit would ask a friend to interrupt him with, “No, I don't know,” what a blessing it would be. NO MORE YOU KNOWS DEAR NO MORE: I could fill a column with responses to the column on sloppy speech habits. And I think I will: WIL " PILL THE CAT/ THIS 15 PINKLEY / opus tragically KICKEP THE BUCKET mv ten you pit his VOUGH' YEAH / NO KIPPING' MILO 15 HEMING OVER W CHECK YOU CW OF THE U IN IC TOMORROW ' motif ' YOU'RE COCAIN' HOME." DEAR ABBY: I dearly love the English language, but it appears that either our English teachers aren’t teaching or their students aren’t learning. I am appalled at the number of teen agers who use the verb “goes" instead of “says.” Example in point: “Butch and I were discussing this problem, and Butch goes. ‘But you promised you’d do it.’ Then I go, ‘Well, I changed my mind.’ So Butch goes, ‘That’s not fair; a promise is a promise.’ Then my mom goes, Will you kids stop fighting!’ and I go, ‘We aren’t fighting.’” Abby, please point out that “goes” is a verb meaning forward motion in movement, not speech. We are producing a nation of lmbecilic sounding youths holding bachelor degrees! And they can’t spell either! A IN PHOENIX DEAR ABBY: Hooray for “Tired of‘OK’ in Arizona” who complained about the annoying habit so many people have of terminating every .sentence with “OK?” as though it were a question. I am also tired of hearing "right?” tacked onto every sentence when no question is asked. For example, John is telling Jane what happened the other day: “I picked up my kid sister, right? Then she asked if I d mind stopping for a few minutes at the library, right? So I stopped at the library, right?" Abby, what is the point of ending every sentence with a "right”? Sign me ... RIGHT IS WRONG IN MAINE DEAR ABBY: Thank "Gail of Shorewood, Wis.,” who is tired of hearing the word “basically" used and overused incorrectly. My family and I have made a    . game of counting the times a person r uses “basically" in one speech or commentary. I have counted as many as eight "basicallys.” It means “as a basis for" or “fundamentally,” but it's now used as a filler and means nothing My prize story concerns a prominent athlete who was asked in a television interview where he was born. He replied, “Well, I was basically born in New York." Need I say more? Another pet peeve of mine is the incorrect use of the pronoun "myself.” There are several rules that apply, but the simple one is, never use “myself' when the pronouns “I” or “me" can be used instead. JEAN IN MASON CITY, IOWA DEAR ABBY: I was happy to notice in your column that someone mentioned the overuse of the word "basically.” Please add my com plaint to the overuse of the word "totally.” Whatever happened to the perfectly good adverbs “completely,” “entirely” and "wholly"? TOTALED BY "TOTALLY" DEAR TOTALED: While we’re on the subject of words, their use, abuse and misuse, the one word that I hear more frequently used incorrectly than correctly is “apropos.” Many people say, “It is very apropos,” as though apropos meant “appropriate.” It doesn’t. It means “concerning,” “regarding,” “pertaining to” or “relevant.” I have heard this error committee oy professionals, politicians, educators, clergy-persons and literate people who should know better, but don’t. I DEAR ABBY: You frequently tell a correspondent, “Your letter made my day!" Well, Abby, listen to this. After miles of avoiding tailgating trucks and speeders hurrying to resort areas, I slowed down as I drove through the small town of Shafter, Calif, where apparently some kind of doings was in progress Crossing with the green light were about 25 teen agers pushing wheel chairs containing senior citizens, apparently from some nursing home. I called out, “You young people are doing a marvelous job!” Abby, they answered me in sign language! Believe me, that made my day! DR. VELMA RLITER, TAFT, CALIF DEAR dr. RITTER: Thanks for two important messages: (I) There are plenty of terrific teenagers around; (2) regardless of our limitations, everybody can do something for somebody. WE USED TO SIT HERE AFTER.
