A word that has become way overused by this generation.

Seriously. As opposed to not seriously. So your listener knows that you're not lying.

Use multiple times in one sentence to establish your credibility. To doubt someone who is legit is heresy.
Dealer: You should buy insurance, I legit have blackjack.

Cassy: I legit, just legitimately shut off my legit laptop. Legit.

A word recently used more often than ever. More than occasionally used in the wrong format or context. Incorrect forms of this word are often used, such as "legitly" when the word should, infact, be legitimately. In general the people who say this word say it way too much and think it sounds really cool but they're wrong.
Dude. Were you at that party last night?
Nah, man couldn't make it.
Too bad, it was legit.

A word hipsters are trying to use to replace "cool" and "awesome." As if hipsters needed help, they sound less intelligent every time they use the word incorrectly in this way.
This new Call of Duty is so freaking legit!
