Here is a submission by TM Liam from New York where he defines filler words with a unique perspective. We here at mymeetingroles.com absolutely agree to his version of the term’s definition. Have a look.

If you think about it, every word is basically just a unique sound we make that hold a unique meaning. Too often, as we speak, these meaningful sounds are accompanied by meaningless ones like ah, um, err etc. or misplaced words such as you know, basically, like, etc. that fill the gaps as we speak. These words are called filler words.
As the Ah Counter today, my role is to keep a track of these fillers words that speakers use during their speech so that you may learn to avoid them. I will make a note of them and present my findings when called upon by the General Evaluator.
