Verbal Abuse

Some adverbs are being badly abused these days, to the point where they are losing their meaning. Our lives are not that long; we should not waste our time on empty words.

So here’s a handy reference to make you a better writer and speaker. Please avoid these words unless there is an actual, definite, absolute, literal need for them.

  • Actually
  • Definitely
  • Absolutely
  • Literally
