Ladybug says: lol @ myself“cut” not “cute” SJ says: It probably didn’t make the list since it is technically two words: a lot. Chad says: I imagine ‘Like’ (#67) is on the rise since it gets inserted into like every sentence. 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) Dan says: Interesting that “no” is #51, but “yes” did not make the list. 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! :-) 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. Laura @ Texas in Africa says: Most frequently used on the web? I’m sure “like” would be higher if we were discussing speech! Michele@TexasAggie says: I think #102 would be the word “awesome”… 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 Angela says: @Laura That was great, I snorted.
