Grammar Comics. Literally.

0

 

Growing up, I always loved the Sunday Comics section of my newspaper. So I thought I’d start a Sunday Comic concept for the blog. I promise nothing heavy on Sundays. Just funny and/or clever comics that relate to grammar and writing. Here’s your first edition.

Few mistakes bother grammar sticklers more than the rampant misuse of the word literally. Of course, there will be continued debate about how common and popular the “misuse” must be before we just acknowledge a “new use” for a word. But that’s a heavy discussion and I promised just comics today.

There’s a blog dedicated entirely to the misuse of literally. It’s where I got today’s comics. I think it’s a few years old, and it seems they haven’t posted in a while, but check it out. It’s called Literally, A Web Log.
