Usage determines meaning, literally.

I really enjoyed this essay on that poor, abused English word “literally.” If you’ll read it carefully you’ll get a very helpful point for Bible interpretation as well as parlor talk.

Note, too, that “wrongainey,” one of the four known thoughtful commenters on the Internet (the other three frequent this blog, thankfully!), has done it again with a mild rejoinder.
