This was great! I am hung up on adult professional commentators constantly saying “sort of “in the middle of their “commenting”. CONSTANTLY. I think you may have addressed this before? Also, people answering with , “I mean….” Ugh!

Yes, “sort of” is a habitual hedge, a chicken-shitted disclaimer.
“You said, ‘Off with her head!'”
“No, I said, ‘Sort of, off with her head!'”

Those are definitely annoying verbal clangers! I hate it when politicians being interviewed by reporters start every answer to a question with “look”, or “listen”.
