I have been told that I say the word literally a lot when I’m speaking. I sometimes use the word literally or the Arabic translation of it “حرفياً”. I have no idea why I say it, but I also noticed that both my mother and sister say it all the time (which might explain why I say it).
I was online the other day when I found a website called The Oatmeal. It makes comics and info-graphics that are really funny, yet informative. It covers topics like grammar, food, animals and technology. I was looking at all the different images,when I found one about the usage of the word literally. I pretty sure that I use the word correctly, but I guess some people don’t.
This post is dedicated to whoever overuses the word literally.
