    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Don't say that word

    Actually, the most overused word is "actually"


    Actually, the most over used word, actually used by people so they say as many syllables as possible is absolutely :)  the word "actually".


    I like to interrupt and say "as opposed to "theoretically"?  That cures them faster than saying "no, I don't know" to someone that overuses "you know".


    How ironic is it that a story about the most overused word does not support text?  Who actually came up with that?
