Why are people starting sentences with the word "So..."?
#41
I just saw this thread. Made me laugh so hard. I think it's just new slang/usage.

I find it less annoying than people saying "as a woman/Texan/sociology student/whatever" or "we will REACH OUT TO YOU'.

Then there's the current "is that a thing?" "that seems to be a thing" which I find amusing, at least this year.

What particularly irks me is when trendy usage like "So..." turns up in supposedly serious media.

For instance, someone asks them a question like, "What do you want to accomplish in life?" They answer, "So, I'm interested in becoming a nurse."

Or when asked, "Can you tell me how much money you intend to raise?" They answer, "So, we really need to raise $1500 by Friday".

What's up with this use of the word "So" to start off a sentence? This word usage seems to have started within the past couple of years, as far as I can tell-- and it's increasing dramatically.

Can anyone make a list of generation word faves from say 1960 on? PaulaO2 since you are a writer you probably make a nice Long one. Any suggestions?

If we are going to do this one, we'll need a new thread; and there will be a lot of words with **** in them. Groovy?

So, I have read this thread entirely. It was Awesome. So, I literally learned to dabble with Mayo, buy a new mattress and stay away from futons? The part about making gnarly accusations toward my partner when she is polishing her nails in the blender was so Far-out man, what a way to grow.

I even snagged up a scoshe of Portuge/deutsch! 4 sure Dude.

So, I was like, really really flabbergasted to read that there was a really really neat connection between the Queen and the Dobie Gullies show, where the girl got it going! Fo sizzle were Maynard G Krebs and the Queen homies? (or was that Gilligan)

So, like now, I totally get the rage from the curmudgeons when the whippersnappers abuse the queens english. Back in my day the “folks” never got uptight about the groovy lingo we used to avoid being square

Dont-know So, what was the point of thread? Ich habe vergessen. Huhsign

I think yer corn-fused a bit.... the point is on the needle, not the thread.

The thread has no point.

One thing that irritates me is when people say "reach out to you". I don't know why I find it irritating but I do. Once people started saying that, it just seemed to grow like an out of control forest fire.

I heard a lawyer, while in court, start her sentences with so. It made me think that those who start a sentence with so are not prepared for what they are going to say next. For a lawyer to do that makes them seem unprepared and even uneducated.

On to bigger and better things today and will avoid starting sentences with so and will avoid reaching out to you and say I can help you with that instead!
