: I am looking for the word that describes phrases such as "I heard that!" "Been there, done that!" "Totally!" or other such space-fillers. I am drawing a blank.
Interjections. (like "Ouch!" or "Wow!") Or: Nattering. Filling the air with idle chatter. (A phrase a coworker used. Not about me I hope.) Chin-wagging. Babble.
