Which word you use very often while posting your response?

Have you noticed that it is a human nature to use a single word many times? I'm not talking about the common words like "the""is","was"..But few other words...While observing closely, I felt I'm using the word "that" many times..I try to avoid it..But many times without my knowledge I type it..Have you ever noticed that you are using a word very often? Specially while posting at mylot?

Yes, I certainly have observed this especially here in mylot. I have used and reused a lot of same words in different discussions. Examples of these are discussions, responses, replies, unfortunately, basically, particularly, regards, take care, and a lot more. I guess it may be attributed to mannerism. But sometimes I would personally think that my mental dictionary is quite limited because of doing this. Some people may have more and wider knowledge that they seldom repeat their words. I guess these are the people who read a lot, but I believe that this may be enhanced through frequent practice of the English language and reading a lot.

don't be disheartened..It is not that repeating same words is because you have a limited knowledge in english..They also talk about our mannerism as you had mentioned.More over sometimes these words flow automatically from our brain without a second thought.

Hi, The words I often use are "Hi", "Best of luck", "Happy mylotting" and "Have a nice day". Most of my posts in myLot will have those words. It is my habit to do so and it is always to wish best of luck to people. So, best of luck to you.
