People often confuse this word with figuratively.
-Dude, you figuratively died of embarassment, you illiterate dipshit.

a much misused adverb, often for emphasis
"I literally died of embarrassment."

"Really? How was reincarnation, you fucking illiterate dipshit?"

used to describe something that actually happens or exists. One of the most overused words in modern society. Not to be confused with figuratively, as this is the complete opposite.
Incorrect usage:

A: It was literally raining cats and dogs.

B: Really dipshit? How many scratches do you have?

Correct usage:
A: Dude, Justin Bieber literally has half a billion views on YouTube.
B: Shit, really? Now I know the world is coming to an end

Truthfully actual. Not figuratively.

Used when not bullshitting or by fake cats pretending not to.

A four syllable word used by monkeys to add emphasis and impress people. Monkeys who use the word don't understand what it means.
Dude: If that monkey says literally one more time I'll stomp him.
Chick: Literally?
Dude: Well, no.

Often used on Facebook by idiots. Adverb carrying the meaning of 'figuratively'. In real life means 'literally'.
