It’s just money or it’s just a car or it’s just a test, or it’s just whatever. What does it’s just do? What does it say regardless of how it is spoken? It’s just. Is it’s just similar to it’s only?
Only def:adverb with the negative or unfortunate result that. I arrived at work only to find the door locked.
It’s just a marriage or it’s only a marriage. The same in respect to invalidation? I am thinking so. When some one responds to a statement with an it’s just or it’s only there is a hint of dismissal or “don’t bother me with your trivia.” I ask you to listen for it’s just and/or it’s only in the workplace. What does it mean and what does it do the flow of conversation?
