Unfortunately less well educated native English speakers have a tendency to add the word 'like' to sentences. It is almost as if they are using the word as a punctuation mark. It is meaningless and is best ignored unless you want to use it as a rough guide as to their level in society.eiris wrote:"He is that delicate-like--He gave his mother a new coat last Christmas--but he wouldn't think of giving me anything so personal-like."
What's the use of "delicate-like","personal-like"?
