Is literally literally the most misused word? This article thinks so. And if you agree, and if you also like comedian David Cross, you might like to see him literally ranting about the word literally.


In other news, I’m literally quite disappointed to learn that after 14 years at the helm of “The Word” column at the Boston Globe, Jan Freeman is signing off (although Erin McKean will continue to write). But you can still find her at her excellent blog, Throw Grammar from the Train, so be sure to visit her there.
