What Does “Literally” Have To Do With “Definitely” And “Totally”?With all the hullabaloo about the figurative sense of literally, language enthusiasts have given much thought to this often maligned term. We've even discussed how the metaphorical extension of literally is nothing new—it's been around since the 1700s—but now we'd like to explore a few other adverbs and their ironic uses.
