Keep the Definition of "Literally" Literal


One of Google's current definitions of "literally" is "used to acknowledge that something is not literally true but is used for emphasis or to express strong feeling." It's time for us to take the word "literally" back. Sign the petition, and let Google know that we prefer our definition of "literally" to be literal.

One of your current definitions of "literally" explains that the word can be used to "acknowledge that something is not literally true." In other words, you (literally) suggest that "literal" means "not literal." Please do your small part to keep the world from turning upside down, and stand for a definition of "literally" that has not been hijacked by language pirates. Keep the definition of "literally" literal.
