    It's certainly not only young women who do this, and it's one of the things that really grate on the nerves. What's worse is to hear young males being interviewed on the news, or sports news, and 95% of them, says "yeah" in mid-sentence, and more often than not it follows "no" - "no - yeah"!! Now THAT is speech challenged!

    Not just young women as in teenagers say it. My sister is in her 40's and totally annoys me with that word.....

    I say "like" in like, every sentence and I am not a young women.

    EDIT: What's the point in giving me a thumbs down? I'm only stating a fact!? I too say "like" in every sentence.

    I find that both young males and females use the word "like" equally, frequently. My supposition is that they have not, "like", made an effort in increase their ability to be "like", articulate.

    i am attempting to correct my daughters speech.

    currently she appears to be overwhelmed by the exuberance of her own verbosity.
