Word Police #1

fogstock-llc-french-stop-signMy previous post contains a word that figuratively gets abused over & over: the word “literally.” Too often I hear the word used for emphasis rather than to explain that something actually happened , and not in a figurative sense. As in, “went to the Old Country Buffet and literally ate everything!”

Really!?  Calling 911 right now.
