    Natural Expressions: "just" (2017.03.22)

    We can use the word "just" to make things seem less important have a softer nuance.

    For one example, this phone conversation:

    Juan: Hey, Sally. What's up?
    Sally: Nothing, I was just calling to ask what time you're going to the party.
      -- Here, Sally could say "I was callling," but she says "I was just calling" to show that her reason for calling is small or not too important.

    Or, in a workplace:

    Daniela: Are you okay, Amir? You look exhausted.
    Amir: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm just a little tired because I didn't sleep well last night.
      -- Amir uses both the expressions "just" and "a little" together here to show that even though he's tired, it's not too big of a problem. And actually, the expressions "just a little" or "just a bit" are used very often in this way.
