We remove from our speech the words parasites
Words parasites are such “pollutants” of speech that do not carry a special semantic load, most often, are introductory words and can be easily thrown out of context.
The problem of such semantic "parasites" is that they cause great damage to our speech; in most cases, a person does not even notice that he uses something similar in his conversation, but it is seen from the side and rather annoying. Any modern person who sets high life goals should have a competent and concise speech.
The way people communicate and put words into beautiful and stylistically correct sentences depends on the attitude of the people around them, which means there are more chances to get a prestigious job, to get acquainted and to get serious relations with educated and educated people.
Such “harmful words” most often become words with weak lexical meaning, for example, particles (as if, perhaps, well, well), introductory words (in short, you understand, in short, that means, listen, probably in general , listen) and so on.
It is not so easy to get rid of parasitic words in speech, and sometimes you try to avoid such words, but during the next conversation they appear again, no matter how hard you try to follow you. It's all a matter of habit, when a person speaks for years in one particular manner, it is very difficult for him to take and reconstruct his speech at one time. Difficult, but possible.
Why is it so important to get rid of the words of parasites?
- If only because the eternal “as if” and “in short” order people around them, they irritate the ears and make not the most pleasant impression when they first meet.
- “Word-weeds” do not always speak of insufficient or improper upbringing, most often they reveal the character of a person, the main feature of which is acute self-doubt. Because of this, a person is lost and hardly expresses his own thoughts, filling awkward pauses with meaningless particles and introductory words, which turns speech into a meaningless stream of incoherent phrases. Such people are not something that you don’t want to listen to, they are just hard to understand, thoughts get confused and reach the final without losing anything, it is rather difficult.
How to understand that it is time for you to get rid of empty words?
The easiest option is to turn on the recorder and try to write down some simple text (for example, your biography or retell the basic idea of the book you read, the movie you watched) under the recording.
Next, listen to what you managed to record, for sure, on hearing immediately the most popular phrases and little words that we call "parasites" will come across.
There is another way to identify excess rubbish in your own speech: ask someone from friends or family members, it is desirable that it is a person who hears you often enough, for a short period of time he listened to the purity of your speech. Let it be a week of time, during this time you will definitely reveal all your lexical flaws, which you will have to fight with later.
How to get rid of parasitic words?
On the Internet, you can often find a way to replace, the principle is simple: an annoying useless word is replaced with any other word, and thus, act with every "parasite".
It seems to be nothing, but as it turned out, the problem is not something that does not disappear, it is also aggravated: firstly,it is very difficult to track down the parasitic words in one's own speech, this is where their main cunning lies, but how to replace something that you don’t notice?
Secondly, as a result, you constantly try to pull yourself up and control, you are fixing on a new word, so as not to forget to insert it in the right situation, and, as a result, plus one parasite word in your vocabulary.
But it’s not necessary to give up, of course, there are no miracles from an empty place, there is no “magic pill” that switches the toggle switch and forces you to speak correctly and competently, but still there are several ways that can really help you.
The very first thing you have to learn is to notice in your own speech that useless “weeds” that come across, and if we are not able to cope on our own, we will have to involve caring and responsible relatives.
Ask someone of your close relatives (members of seven and children are best suited for such purposes) to watch your speech, and for every use of the “parasite” you will instantly “fine” you. For example, slap lightly on the lips, on the shoulder or sharply exclaim something.
The most effective way - using financial opportunities - promise your controller for each word-parasite to count 10 rubles (100, 500, depending on your capabilities) from your own wallet.
The more such controllers will be around you - the better - you will more often be “fined”, which means that the process of self-control will improve much faster. There are other ways to fight your own addiction: read as much as you can, out loud.
Naturally, articles from magazines or the tabloid press are not suitable for this, select high-quality works of fiction, a classic would be ideal. Give such exercises at least 15-20 minutes a day, and after some time you will notice that your speech did not just become cleaner, it was enriched with new words, the stupidity and angularity of speech disappeared.
There is an opinion that there are no parasitic words in Russian, the main problem is their incorrect and inappropriate use. For example, “as if” is well suited for the sentence where you want to reflect the comparison, and “shorter” is suitable for a brief formulation of some volumetric thought.
There is one more problem: a peculiar fashion for words, when everyone around them begins to use the same word, it sticks so tightly to the language that, in consequence, it is impossible to get rid of it in any way. To prevent this from happening: chase away like words from yourself as soon as you feel that they are beginning to spin in your head too.
Try to always give yourself time to think about what you are going to say in a few seconds. In the head of each person such an action is carried out, very quickly and not noticeable to us, the phrases are chosen quickly and to the point.
But it also happens that the thought you want to convey contains too many details and branches, a person begins to get confused and insert unnecessary words in order to have time to “think out” the rest of the thought.
Remember, it is better to speak in monosyllabic and simple sentences - they are both easier to build and heard by ear they are easier and simpler than composite ones, full of additional descriptions and inserts.
If, nevertheless, you feel that you cannot formulate a thought, do not hesitate to pause in your own monologue, remember, it is better to remain silent and then speak competently than to launch a couple of “parasites” in an awkward space.
