A shorter more convenient form of the word: totally. This word is most commonly used by teenage girls.
The most obvious advantage of using this word is the time saved. Data collected at a prestigious university found that every syllable spoken takes approximately 0.14 seconds.
The same prestigious university also found that the average valley girl says the word totally around 190 times a day.
If you do the math, the average time saved by using the word totes as opposed to totally would save 26.6 seconds a day! Over the course of a year that adds up to 2.7 hours!!
