Seems like in writing it’s “pick one and stick to it”, but in speech not so much.
- Somebody just didn’t finish their sentence.
- Somebody is using mostly casual speech but wants to be more polite when saying something that might otherwise sound too forceful?
- With gaming streamers it seems like a distinction between two interwoven threads of “talking to the audience” and “talking to oneself with an audience”.
- In a polite conversation, do people sometimes throw in a few casual comments on purpose in order to test the response?
