"Why is he keep saying" tells a whole lot of your english xD People that dont speak English fluently use "like" or just say "ummm" between every word. And yes, I do know that your English is bad. And no, I dont think he speaks English better than I do. Probably doesnt even understand half of the words I said in that sentence

I have no idea what you just said because of the bad word order in that sentence but I do not use translator if that's what you are referring to. Also I dont think that get-right himself would come to answer your dumbass question. And not showing off just arguing with a person arguing back at me

First of all, no second of all how did I show off? i just said I have better english than you do. Third of all why are you still answering me if you "dont care"? And you do know that kind of an question is kinda rude, it's like asking "why do you stutter so much" from a guy that has a real problem with stuttering
2021-02-21 17:48
It's common. "Like" is a "in between word". It can usually be replaced by "uhhhh" or "for example" in most cases if you pay attention. But "like" is easier. You must not talk to many non-native English speakers because it's really very common for non-native English speakers to use the word "like" more often than native speakers.

So is it good to use in serius?
2021-02-21 15:41
+1 Using "like" in sentences is pretty common, especially for people from non-native English speaking countries using it.

Search for fer and aleksiB's interviews. You're gonna be LIKE'D so much you'll be liking to like everything, like, alike. But as someone else said, it's because english is not his primary language, and because it's a connective general word. It's not wrong nor bad, it's just a language vice.

Because they make fun of everything. Internet is a toxic "place" full of trolls, and Twitch chat is one of the worst reunions of those individuals. Along with hltv's forums

bcoz we dont always have the sentence like completely built in our head when we start saying it, so instead of standing there and saying emmmm ummmm we say `like` to fill in the gap while we are coming up with words to say :)

Using "like" makes your sentence more generalist. It helps when you don't know exactly how to say what you want to say. But again, it's a language vice, so it can come out because of anxiety, being nervous, pressure, etc. - Using "like" makes you more, like, open. Helps when you don't know exactly how to say what you want to say. It's like something you do, like, automatically. It may happen because of what you feel in the moment

2021-02-21 15:38
If you are truly interested in knowing, it is a filler word. For example instead of "hmm" or "errrh". You usually learn this when learning a second, third or fourth language in order to buy yourself thinking time when constructing sentences. Of course, it can turn in to a bad habit, so you keep doing it even after being fluent in a new language, which I believe is the case here.

I know the usage of it, i'm just asking the reason why he does that. Even i don't use it that much. And he is a desk-talker rn, he shouldn't use it. Machine, Pimp or others don't do that.

Lmfao? Do not be pathetic Indo. He just began to this and even now chat and community are making fun of him and that is sad. Pimp is also non-english but he does not do that. He also streams and plays just like gtr. Basicly if you wanna answer my question without a toxic attidute. Do it or just sttfu.

This very thread has toxicity imbedded into it. You never intended to listen to rationalisations. Any time you were given an honest answer you just asked "BUT WHY?!?!" over and over. You were the one being toxic and that started when you created the thread. Also, again, you're comparing him to other people as if they're supposed to all be perfect. I think pimp is far more annoying that Get_right, even though he doesn't say "like" every other sentence. Fucking hell, I can't believe you try to make me seem like the toxic one here.

people that doesn't feels 100% comfortable speaking english gets ''support'' from using this word, it can be a good connector for pretty much every sentence

its his second language, and when you speek another language many people often try to find filler words so that they dont speak with pauses between every sentence.

Well, considering how shit this community is, he will get that kind of stuff regardless of how eloquent he sounds. So... I don't think he'll see that. But it's hard. Talking to a regular stream is different than talking to a massive public in a professional manner. Even Richard Lewis and Thorin said recently they had to tone down their accents and learn how to speak in a proper way to get their message across. It's a skill GeT_RiGhT will learn eventually.

He has to learn how to properly speak and tone down his accent a bit like everybody else has done. It's his first event, so give him a break.
