15 Crutch Words that Can Ruin Your Well-framed Sentences

Crutch_Words_Can_Ruin_Sentences_WriterCommits_Neha_Agrawal_Blog.PNG

Read a very nice write-up in Dictionary.com about common 6 fillers in the English language, and I can totally relate to it. I have come across many people who like to use crutch words or fillers in their sentences. Not only is the excessive usage of these words distracting, but also takes away the essence of your content, and makes it sound unpolished.

Some of the notorious fillers I have come across are:
  1. Actually

  2. Basically

  3. Literally

  4. Really

  5. Apparently

  6. Obviously

  7. Honestly

  8. Like

  9. So

  10. To be fair

  11. You Know

  12. I mean

  13. You Know

  14. Kind of

  15. Hmm..
I am sure you would agree that using these words repetitively in the sentence can get amusing for the listeners or readers, and mar your credibility as a writer or speaker.

If you also have come across any other such crutch words, leave a comment below and share your experiences.

Happy learning!

Love and Live,
