No one uses this adverb in old movies and cartoons but in modern shows ruins it and everywhere on youtube it's cringey soon most people would turn off their volume just to stop hearing it. Just my opinion.

Strange that its usage was rather high around the American Civil War, but hit lows around the 1910s.

It's not just that term. Ever since SJWs became a public eyesore, there's other terms they tend to repeat a lot. For example, "gross". Look up any disapproving virtue-signaling review or critique on any number of former Gawker websites and you'll find it in no time, maybe even in the article title. They could say disgusting, revolting, sickening, repulsive, distasteful, and any other number of synonyms. But they're far more likely to simply call it gross, and even if they use those other terms, they'll use gross first.

Why? Why that term? It doesn't even sound like a word a (non-German) adult would tend to say otherwise, unless they were talking about math or money. In fact, I'm pretty sure it used to be a term typically associated with a more elementary vocabulary. You know, school kids running around at recess regarding "icky things" like "Ew! A bug, kill it kill it! SLAP EW, GROSS!"

But at least they tend to use "gross" properly. How this blatant misuse of "literally" took off, I'll never know.

Are you seriously suggesting that only libs use words like "gross" and "literally" so it must be some sort of conspiracy?

>>3513232

No, you jackass, no one's suggesting a conspiracy theory just because one political ideology side uses some words way more than others.

It's not really "conspiracy" or even "theory" if you can find loads of examples within minutes just by browsing Polygon, Kotaku and its related affiliate sites.

Been watching youtube for years, my advice don't use adverbs or it makes you sound and look like one of those trendy assholes millennials. in fact don't use it at all. keep your vocabulary in check. this isn't the 21th century we know its been dumb down. And if one of your younger colleges ask you why they use it in their sentence? It's because it makes them sound like an asshole wannabes cringers. You will hate them when they cross your line.

I can totally see how conservatives, like, think with the fear centers of their brain and like, seriously lack creativity enough to use, like, extra words and junk because it's like, totally bogus for them to like even string together a gnarly thought without giving themselves a bummer of a headache.

They like, totally need to minimize the stress on their gray and keep it sway or they crash and burn hard, bro.

I'm still offended by the misuse of the word literally, but I'm more baffled as to how the mixup of "loose" and "lose" came to be.

No.3513761

The word 'irregardless,' a traditionally grammatically incorrect version of 'regardless,' has technically become a real word simply because of its usage.

The funny thing is, a word becomes a word simply because of how widely it is used, which is how slang terms can become 'real' words, at least to a point. The consensus on what becomes a 'real' word is up to debate, the Mariam-Webster dictionary is the standard for such lexicon.

I think the use of 'literally' in place of the word 'figuratively' is dumb, similar to how the use of the word 'irony/ironic' is often incorrect from it's original definition, but the expression of thought is generally understood given proper context.

tl;dr, if you want to sound somewhat professional and consistent, it is advisable to use grammar and descriptive words correctly, based off of their traditional forms. For example, don't use 'words' like ur in place of your.

> I'm more baffled as to how the mixup of "loose" and "lose" came to be.

Probably because "loose" looks like it could be pronounced the way "lose" actually is pronounced. And "lose" looks like it'd be pronounced kinda like "Lowe's" (as in the US hardware store). So people think to themselves "Well, 'lose' has an 'oo' sound it in; I guess it should be spelled with 'oo'."
