Literally... (A Grammar Nazi Post)



Hey, guess what, fellow babies? The word "literally" has been misused by so many people, its new meanings are both "literally" and "figuratively!"

It's all here! Isn't this insane?!?

This is the type of thing I always rant about. I know the English language is constantly changing and evolving, but for people to throw up their hands and validate others' mistakes...!!!

Okay, I'll stop now.

Thanks for your time.

  6. Isn't that what the urban dictionary is for? I also understand language changes. I don't always get it right, but what is the point of learning the structure if we can just change it by being wrong a lot.

    1. No problem. Looks like this one's gonna be my only entry for September. Maybe I should have asked to use some of the extra 50 or so that you have! Ha.
