I did not know what dysfluency is before I asked this question and got an answer.this question and got an answer.

Well, now I want a term for a special phrase or words that people keep on repeating when they speak. The most common words are "...you know..."

When I was a kid...you know... I was very shy. My father...you know...was an outspoken person. He always insisted me...you know...to be brave and straightforward...

The best example is here, a Sunder Pichai video. Worth noting that there's dysfluency as well!

I lost counting the number of 'you knows' in his speech! :)

I am asking ...you know... but what is it if it is not 'dysfluency'?
