like, whatever

Similar to the way a Valley Girl would use "like", it is unclear if this word has an actual meaning or is just used to fill voids in a sentence. Literally it means "or what would be" in a similar way to "whatever" but without the dismissiveness. Often it is used to preface the main point of an argument. Also, using this word may make you sound a little snobby or pretentious.
