    What basically is basically ?

    ... basically what I wanna say is …I seem to have heard the word basically used more than a dozen times during only one TV program on a Discovery Channel today. Even to the untrained foreign ear it sounded unnecessary in the context, so I dare say it’s grown to be another parasite word in English. Am I right?

    Вы... в общем... это... как его...
    Ну... словом... не тяните.
    Вот, между прочим, так сказать,
    Что мне хотелось вам сказать.
