  1. Caroline says:

    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.

  2. Laura says:

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