Amazing!

Didn't know where else to ask ...

In Germany there is a funny book about an author (written by that author) and an anarchistic kangaroo called "Die Känguruh-Chroniken". (If you understand German I highly recommend the first two and perhaps a halve books.) In this book appears a tourist girl, an air-head, which talks a lot without saying anything, you know, and that is totally amazing! One word which she really says often is "amazing". Last week I met in London a French girl living for a few years in London and the word "amazing" was really noticeable.

Now my question is: Where does this style of talking come from? Who is talking like that? Is it really a known style or is it just that famous for readers of this book?

If you could help me here, you know, that would be so amazing!

Re: Amazing!

I hate the word "amazing". It's the most overly-used adjective. That goes with "the narrative", "at the end of the day", and "through the lens..."

Like, you know?

It seems there are a lot of trend phrases which I do not know about. Awesome!

Re: Amazing!

Btw. one word I hate is: "signature" as it is used e.g. on menus to suggest that the restaurant is famous for a steak or burger.

The only good use of the word "Amazing" is the one towards the end of this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyXJfUPSQhM
