A new replacement for the words: Cool, Interesting, Fascinating, Awesome, ect.

Primarily used by those who have the vocabulary of a 5th grader.

The word can also be put in a sentence as a filler with no apparent meaning. (b)
Jake: "Have you seen the new Froyo place?"
Tom: "Yeah! It's totally legit."
Jake: *Long sigh*

(b) Jordan: "Have you seen Date Movie? That movie was awful."
Alex: "Yeah. Total legit-fail."
Jordan: " ...What?"

Teacher: "So as you can see, the derivative of e to the "x" is just e to the "x"
Student: "That's legit."
Teacher: "..sure"
