AI writing a commonly used word on a wall

If you met someone who spoke the way ChatGPT does, you’d probably think they’re a bit strange and try to avoid them. If not, then you might be the strange one!

In this article, I’ll give you lists of common words and phrases ChatGPT overuses, tips on how to reduce the frequency of these words, and two conclusions (one written by a human and one by an AI).

I’ve experimented extensively with ChatGPT, trying to figure out how to get the best possible results. I’m sure many of you can relate. Most of my experiments have been futile, and the biggest issue is that ChatGPT simply doesn’t sound like a human. Instead, it sounds like an AI robot that’s trying (and failing miserably) to imitate a human.

Because of my experience with ChatGPT, I can instantly identify any blog article that has used its assistance. I’ve become like a human AI detector, and I’m sure anyone who uses AI regularly has developed this same ability.

Here’s a typical ChatGPT response to an article introduction on “What is Dropshipping?”

“Embark on a journey into the realm of dropshipping as we delve into its intricacies. In this article, we navigate through the fundamentals, exploring how this innovative e-commerce model operates. Whether you’re a newcomer eager to explore new business avenues or a seasoned entrepreneur seeking to expand, join us as we navigate the exciting world of dropshipping together.”

This introduction has many commonly used words that make it a dead giveaway as an AI paragraph. Humans do not talk this way unless they’re an annoying try-hard.

Words ChatGPT Claims it Uses Too Much

First asked ChatGPT to tell me 40 words it uses too much, here is the response:

  • Actually
  • Additionally
  • However
  • Furthermore
  • Therefore
  • Consequently
  • Notably
  • Particularly
  • Importantly
  • Essentially
  • Indeed
  • Overall
  • Typically
  • Generally
  • Specifically
  • Clearly
  • Obviously
  • Moreover
  • Thus
  • Likewise
  • Similarly
  • Also
  • For example
  • For instance
  • Because
  • Since
  • As such
  • Despite
  • While
  • Whereas
  • Hence
  • Ultimately
  • Commonly
  • Usually
  • Often
  • Sometimes
  • Frequently
  • Regularly
  • Periodically
  • Customarily

I have noticed several of those words used frequently, however, in my experience, they are not the main offenders that sound the AI detection alarm bell. Let’s try a different prompt.

Now I asked ChatGPT to list 40 words that it uses far more than the average human:

  • Therefore
  • Furthermore
  • Additionally
  • Consequently
  • Notably
  • Specifically
  • Importantly
  • Indeed
  • Moreover
  • Thus
  • Similarly
  • Conversely
  • Subsequently
  • Nevertheless
  • Hence
  • Utilize
  • Indicate
  • Demonstrate
  • Facilitate
  • Comprise
  • Pertinent
  • Optimal
  • Efficacious
  • Predominantly
  • Substantial
  • Implement
  • Integrate
  • Contextualize
  • Elucidate
  • Articulate
  • Correspondingly
  • Cumulatively
  • Substantiate
  • Iterative
  • Proactive
  • Paradigm
  • Synergy
  • Benchmark
  • Leverage
  • Holistic

Again, I do see some of these words used frequently but they’re not the typical ChatGPT words, although many of them are very robotic and non-human.

Now for the words I see too much in my experience with having ChatGPT. I’ve put them into two categories.

How Do You Stop ChatGPT Using the Same Words and Phrases All the Time?

This is an issue I’ve encountered as well, and although I wish I could provide a definitive solution, I can’t. Even when providing ChatGPT with a list of words and phrases to avoid in its responses, it still ends up using some of them.

However, the frequency of those commonly overused words does seem to decrease when your prompt specifically asks for them not to be used, so it’s still worth doing.

I’ve experimented with building several custom GPT models that I’ve prompted to avoid certain words and phrases, and to take a different directional approach, but this hasn’t been a foolproof solution either.

If avoiding these words and phrases is crucially important, you have the option to ask ChatGPT to analyze each response for any of the listed words or phrases after it generates the text. However, this is quite time-consuming and impractical if you’re using ChatGPT for writing articles regularly.

In an attempt to find a foolproof method for stopping ChatGPT from overusing the same words and phrases, I decided to directly ask it for a solution. Here’s the response I received:

“Currently, there isn’t a built-in, foolproof method to prevent me from using specific words you’ve asked to avoid, mainly because I don’t have memory across interactions and can’t retain settings or preferences from one session to another. However, there are several strategies you can employ to improve the situation when you need specific words to be avoided in my responses:

  1. Explicit Reminder: Each time you interact with me, explicitly remind me at the start of your prompt that you would like me to avoid certain words. This way, it’s fresh in the context of our current interaction.
  2. Use Alternatives: Provide me with a list of alternative words or phrases that I can use instead of the words you want to avoid. This can guide my responses more effectively.
  3. Contextual Clarity: Clearly explain why you want these words avoided (if possible), as this can help me understand the context better and adjust my language accordingly.
  4. Review and Revise: After receiving my response, if I use a word from your avoidance list, you can point it out and ask for a revision. This helps in the short term to get the response you need.
  5. Summary Requests: Ask for summaries of your requests without the use of specific words, making it a simpler task for me to focus on the content without those terms.
  6. Feedback Loop: Consistently providing feedback when I use a word you wanted avoided can help in a single session, as I can attempt to adjust subsequent responses accordingly.”

I have experimented with these strategies without any consistent positive outcomes. The problem is they are time-consuming strategies when you’re prompting regularly and the success rate is hit and miss.

This is the prompt I have had the most success with:

“Avoid using the following words in your responses: [list your words here]. This is important so be strict on this rule throughout our conversation. After each response, analyze your response and revise if any of these words or phrases slip through. Do you understand?”

Conclusion – Written by Thomas Sleeth

Even if you manage to prevent ChatGPT from using the list of words discussed in this article, you’ll likely face another issue. ChatGPT often replaces these commonly overused words with other terms that sound equally unusual and robotic.

While eliminating the frequently used words is important, these words are often found within the unnecessary and fluffy sentences that ChatGPT tends to generate regularly.

I believe it’s a far better strategy to focus on eliminating those fluffy, non-valuable sentences altogether. By doing so, you’ll naturally notice fewer repetitive words and phrases being used.

However, this is easier said than done, as AI models seem to inherently generate these types of sentences no matter what prompts you provide. Most of the time, a human touch is required to thoroughly revise and edit the content to avoid this issue.

One tactic I’ve personally found useful is what I call the “Too Much Content Strategy.” Here’s how it works:

Let’s say I need a 300-word section for a blog post, but I don’t want any fluff within that section. I’ll ask ChatGPT to provide a comprehensive list of everything that can be included in that 300-word section, and I’ll copy all the relevant content I want included.

I’ll then paste that content into a separate chat window, and it typically ends up being enough to write around 1,500 words. This forces ChatGPT to cram every piece of information within a much smaller word count, making it harder for it to include unnecessary fluffy content.

However, even with this approach, a human touch is still required to ensure every sentence provides value to the reader and to remove any remaining obvious AI elements. I have yet to see AI write content that sounds truly human without some level of human assistance and editing.

Conclusion 2 – Written by ChatGPT

In the ever-evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, ChatGPT stands as a testament to how deeply technology can permeate and revolutionize our communication frameworks. This AI’s ability to navigate complex linguistic terrains and tailor responses showcases not only the robust underpinnings of its programming but also its capacity to innovate and galvanize thought.

The holistic approach taken in crafting its responses underscores a commitment to elevate and enhance user interactions. As we delve into this era of burgeoning AI capabilities, it becomes crucial to embrace and explore the potential of ChatGPT to facilitate a more immersive and bespoke digital experience.

Moreover, the journey of mastering this technology is not just about unleashing powerful algorithms but also about fostering an environment where creative musings and practical endeavors merge. Through this exploration, we uncover the intricate tapestry that is AI communication—constantly expanding, always intriguing, and ceaselessly striving to transcend its previous limits.
