Have a Question about some Grammar point? Share it with the world!
Hi. I've been hearing this phrase a lot and I'm not sure how to take it:
っていうか [tte iu ka] or というか [to iu ka], and occasionally (seemingly) shortenned to てか [te ka].
Does anyone know what this means and how it's used?

It means 'in other words', but it is used by teenagers as a filler, similar to how Western teenagers says 'you know' all the time.
