New Country Vocab: “Legiterally”

What's Next, "Can't-Evenistic"?

There’s a new word for us all to loathe, internalize and later on use unintentionally in conversation, and it is “legiterally.”

A bro-speak fusion of legitimately and literally, “legiterally” can be used to describe a truth so profound that real, actual words are not enough to convey its totally-ness.

And like “selfie,” “friendzone” and “lol” before it, it’s only a matter of time before “legiterally” shows up in a country song. So, here’s a handy guide of potential uses.

Legiterally (adverbictive):

Florida Georgia Line are legiterally running out of room for arm tattoos.

Garth Brooks’ stage prop is legiterally a time machine to the ‘90s.
