POUGHKEEPSIE (UPI)"Whatever" remains the most annoying word or phrase in the English language, a poll indicates. "Like" and "you know" trailed in the show and place positions, the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion in Poughkeepsie NY, reported. Almost one-third, 32 percent, of the adults surveyed selected "whatever."

Another 21 percent picked "like" and 17 percent "you know."
