Here's some citations of articles about _like_ (I apologize if any of
these have already been posted here):

Underhill, "_Like_ is, Like, Focus," American Speech 63 (1988): 234-46.

Blyth et al., "I'm Like, 'Say What?!': A New Quotative in American Oral
Narrative," American Speech 65 (1990): 215-27.

Ferrara & Bell, "Sociolinguistic Variation and Discourse Function of
Constructed Dialogue Introducers: The Case of _be_ + _like_," American
Speech 70: 265-90.

Gee, this American Speech looks like a pretty interesting journal!
