Specifically, I'm looking to create a list of different words that are used for a presentation, words like "Um, Uh, Well," and ESPECIALLY words that resemeble the usage of "Like," in English.
If i'm correct, in Arabic, the word "Ya'anii" which means 'like', is used the same way. My Arabic teacher explained that during class, and when he was interviewed for Al-Jazeera and showed us his interview, he used it a lot and told us he felt sort of embarrassed. So to furthur my question, what kind of social opinions/expectations are there for different vocalized pauses? Are they looked down upon and considered obnoxious, like the use of "like" in English?
Any examples you can think of would be amazing, thank you
[And if this was already discussed before, a link to that post would be totally appreciated, thanks :) ]
