whichbe commented on the word micropause
The definition I keep seeing is something like "is a small duration break taken frequently during periods of continuous computer use."I think this definition sucks, mostly because of the 'micro' part. To me, a micropause should be the moment of hesitation between word choice when someone is speaking. Is there a word for that?
