How to write "something like that"?

The rather popular expression “something like this” today, meaning “something like this,” “something like that,” strictly speaking, is not literary and is used only in colloquial terms. This, however, does not mean that the spelling rules are not applicable to it. In the end, even colloquialism is better to write correctly.

The main difficulty in this turnover is, of course, the very beginning. How to write: “something like this” or “something like that”? In this case, “somehow” is an adverb that is used to express uncertainty and is written with a hyphen. For example: "Somehow it just happened that Petrov became the headman."

Accordingly, in the expression “somehow like this”, it is necessary to write the particle “something” through a hyphen. For example:

  • "How to do it? - Something like this";
  • "How did you do it?" - Something like that".
