Being Vague

Sometimes we don’t want to give a definite answer to a question. We can use some different expressions to be vague, such as “You know” (we think the other person will understand what we mean), “Mm – not sure”, “Dunno” (short form of “I don’t know” or “We’ll see” / “I’ll see” (meaning “I’ll decide later”.)
