Filler used to complete sentences in written composition. This used to be called "stuffing sentences with straw," but since no one uses straw anymore, the term "styrofoam" is now employed. Anytime the writer cannot think of a specific word that would be appropriate in a sentence, he or she merely substitutes a "styrofoam" word in the construction, which hopefully he or she will later replace with an actual word that has a specific definition. Examples of famous styrofoam words are nouns such as "thing," "area," "aspect," "case," "factor," "fashion," "field," "kind," "lot," "manner," "nature," "process," "situation," "stuff," "type," and so on; adjectives such as "nice," "fantastic," "good," "great," "pretty," "super," "awesome," "terrific," "terrible," "horrible," "funny," and so on; and verbs such as "do," "give," "get," "have," "hold," "make," "put," "take," and so on. Most of these words are commonly used inappropriately, and are seldom used to convey an accurate sensory impression.
