ChatGPT is largely trained on the patterns of human writing, so the high usage of these phrases may be down to the fact they have very high usage in the real world.

Prompts are another factor which affects the frequency of certain phrases. For example, a significant number of users use the tool for generating articles, and therefore you would expect to see a lot of article-related phrases.

1. “It is important to note that”

ChatGPT doesn’t just blurt out a wall of text—it’s capable of weighing up different bits of information based on what it determines will be of most interest to the user. It often uses the line “It is important to note that…” to draw the reader’s attention to a specific point or detail.

2. “In this article”

Other variations include: in this guide, in this blog post, in this blog entry.

Variations with adjectives: comprehensive article, ultimate guide, intricate blog post.

As mentioned previously, content creation is a popular ChatGPT prompt and ChatGPT has a really bad habit of using “In this article…” to state the intentions of said article. It’s theorized that ChatGPT has picked up this habit from human-written essays, since “In this essay” is indeed a common introductory phrase in essay writing.

3. “Master the art of”

Many millions of ChatGPT users use how-to’s as the basis of their prompt e.g. “How to bake a cake” and the response will invariably contain something along the lines of “Master the art of cake baking”. ChatGPT loves to present every activity as being highly skilled, hence why it likens everything to art.

4. “In summary”

ChatGPT’s writing tone is formal by default, and the way it structures a long-form text seems to be a direct result of training on academic writing, giving rise to common phrases such as “In conclusion” and “In summary”.

5. “A testament to”

Some phrases are heavily utilized by ChatGPT to enable it to expand on points, highlight examples and make correlations, which all serve to strengthen the chatbot’s statements and impress the user. “A testament to” is one such phrase that helps to enrich ChatGPT’s writing in this way.

6. “In the dynamic world of”

This chatbot can’t resist inserting a descriptive word before a noun. The word ‘dynamic’ is in a class of its own, because not only does it feature in the common phrase “In the dynamic world of”, it’s also one of ChatGPT’s favorite adjectives.

7. “A tapestry of”

There are plenty of words and phrases that one can use to paint a picture of threading multiple different elements together, but for whatever reason, this particular AI tool is obsessed with saying “A tapestry of” e.g. “The city is a tapestry of cultures, languages, and traditions.”

8. “Delve into”

If you ask ChatGPT an open question, or press it for a comprehensive response, you can expect it to employ one of its favorite phrases in the introduction: “Delve into”, as in “Let’s delve into the ever-evolving world of common ChatGPT phrases”. To be fair, it’s a pertinent phrase to use when you are about to thoroughly investigate a topic.

9. “Embark on a journey”

When ChatGPT switches to a more conversational tone, everything becomes an adventure, exploration and a journey. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the phrase “Embark on a journey”, but the chatbot uses it in so many contexts that half the time it feels out of place and the wrong choice of tone.

10. “A treasure trove of”

Humans in the real word often can’t resist a cliche or two in their writing, and as such, a few cliches have made their way into ChatGPT’s artificial neural network, too. If the chatbot finds out that something valuable exists somewhere in large quantities, be prepared to read the phrase “A treasure trove of”.

11. “In this digital world”

When you combine the chatbot’s favorite adjective with its favorite noun, the common ChatGPT phrase ‘digital world‘ is born. Let’s be honest, “In this digital world” is a fancier way of saying “the current era” and it’s designed to make its writing appeal to as wide an audience as possible.

12. “When it comes to”

Another useful phrase for introducing a topic or transitioning to a new point. Unlike some of the other introductory phrases in this list, which tend to exaggerate the level of complexity, “When it comes to” is quite easy-going, and is used a lot in responses where ChatGPT is showing you how to do something.

13. “In the annals of”

We’ve all been on the receiving end of a ChatGPT-led history lesson. It’s one of those subjects that lends itself perfectly to outputting information in large volumes, which is one of the chatbot’s key attributes. Brace yourself for a wall of text if you see the words “In the annals of history…”

14. “So go ahead”

Another common phrase that you often come across in the conclusion of an article or a guide or any piece of text which is instructional, like the “How to bake a cake” example we mentioned earlier. ChatGPT likes to sign off with a few words of encouragement to get the user to put their newfound knowledge to the test: “So go ahead and bake that cake!”

15. “In the realm of”

If you prompt ChatGPT to write about a specific topic, it often introduces it via the broader category it falls into, perhaps to flesh out the text a bit more. For instance, if you are enquiring about the best paint color for your apartment, it will say “In the realm of interior design”.
