Hi all!
What das "erm" mean? I haven't found this word in any dictionary...

Hello zaby,

'erm' is also spelt 'um', which you can find in the Cambridge Dictionary (follow the link). It's not really a word but rather the sound many people make when they are deciding what to say.

If it's something like interjection or just sound, schoudn't commas be used on both sides (in front of interjection and after it?
