Legitimate: Plz Stahp by Spex84 Legitimate: Plz Stahp by Spex84
A plea from the heart, or perhaps the kidneys.
"Legitimately" is the new "totally", apparently, except it's even more inapt than "totally" was.

I suppose we could rewind a half century and go back to using "certifiable". As in, "that whale is certifiably massive".

Deal?

I generally agree with you o: and I do mean "in general"

If we use genuinely until it becomes annoying can we go back to using legitimately? XD

I'm ok with people using the word for legitimate reasons!
If everyone alternated between the dozen or so other options, it would prevent over-saturation!

The snobby part of me gets where you're coming from, but the linguistics nerd part, the bigger part, says prescriptivism sucks for myriad reasons, there's no stopping semantic change and the natural evolution of language, and as long as effective communication happens I don't see the issue.

Fair enough. I legitimately understand your point. Totally. Totes. Fo' realz. Certifiably. Indubitably.
I'm just sayin' we need to evolve the current slang past "legitimately" because the word is becoming nails-on-chalkboard annoying.
...
That would be super green.
