    I’m personally really surprised that “lol” didn’t make the cut! (I realize it’s not actually a word in and of itself, but it’s used as one in daily speech now)

    1. Emily says:

      It’d be interesting to see how often “yes” is replaced with “yeah,” and “yep” compared to how often “no” is replaced with “nope.” I would guess that people switch out “yes” more than “no.” Just a guess though! :-)

      1. Steffi says:

        Another guess would be that it’s because “no” isn’t just used as an opposite to “yes”. You can also say things like “I’ve got no idea”, et cetera.

    I can’t believe the word “MOM” isn’t on the list. I know I hear it about a thousand times a day lol
