what good is a dictionary that uses the word you're looking up the meaning of to define itself

This, what a shitty dictionary. It probably has like literally 9000 mistakes.

I literally just came into this thread, literally, and I was literally itching to post a sentence which literally raped the usage of the word literally. But I was literally heartbroken to find that literally everybody had already made literally the exact same joke. Literally.

Why do they keep catering to the stupidity of the world by editing the dictionary?
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

ALL HAIL CELESTIA

My local area is full of rich blonde girls whose speech consists 75% of the word 'literally' and 20 % of the word 'like' and about 5% of actual subject content.


edit: just read the op properly.


I am going to make the people who put this into their dictionaries pay. I will say no more than that so as to not leave evidence incriminating myself.

In colloquial language, this is somewhat accurate.

In discourse between people who aren't stupid and in an academic context, this is not.

EDIT also hi hriday i've missed you

After reading the OP my brain literally couldn't handle my indifference and decided to explode. My brain matter ran out of my ears in a stream of pink goo some of which i managed to collect in a wine glass, i mixed it with some vodka and drank it.
It was surprisingly refreshing.
DISCLAIMER: There's a very good chance that i have no idea what i'm talking about.

When a word has two meanings that are the opposites of eachother, how do people continue to communicate with eachother and know what the other person meant? I literally don't know how people can be this stupid.

You can write any word out with a definition under it then save it as a jpeg. That doesn't make it true.

The only dictionary with any actual merit is Oxford. Show me this in Oxford and I'll give a shit.

From the Oxford dictionary

Definition of literally in English
literally
Pronunciation: /ˈlɪt(ərəli/
Translate literally | into French | into German | into Italian | into Spanish
adverb
in a literal manner or sense; exactly:
the driver took it literally when asked to go straight over the roundabout
tiramisu, literally translated ‘pull-me-up’
 informal used for emphasis while not being literally true:
I have received literally thousands of letters


In its standard use literally means ‘in a literal sense, as opposed to a non-literal or exaggerated sense’, as for example in I told him I never wanted to see him again, but I didn’t expect him to take it literally. In recent years an extended use of literally (and also literal) has become very common, where literally (or literal) is used deliberately in non-literal contexts, for added effect, as in they bought the car and literally ran it into the ground. This use can lead to unintentional humorous effects (we were literally killing ourselves laughing) and is not acceptable in formal contexts, though it is widespread.
