I was just reading a novel that made frequent use of the statement, "Er..."

Has anyone here ever heard "Er..." used in conversation? Just curious. In fact I've wondered about this every time I saw it, since I first saw it, when I was a kid. I have never heard anybody say, "Er..."

Thanks a million

I hear politicians using the word all the time. For example, "I am... err... uh... for the right to carry arms... err... but... uh... when it rains on a Tuesday at 3:00 PM in the Sahara desert and when caught on video tape by an Eskimo... err.. any questions?"

I've heard different English people say er and erm before while visiting the UK. Here in Kentucky, I've heard a few say it, stammering while thinking of something to add to the convo if they were at a loss for words.
