A rare breed of person who types correctly, using corrent grammer & punctuation where necessary. They are often for elitists because of their desire to mingle with other literates.

They detest things such as chatspeak, which is often called "shorthand" by illiterates. Some literates can deal with said chatspeak, while others cannot.
This is a Literates Only room. We came here to have actual discussions without the chatspeak.

Literal. It's the new way to say literal. Literal isn't literally used as literal anymore. We need a new literal. Literally, this is it.

Literal + seriously = literously; it's seriously literal.
I literally thought of this word like, just now. But literously I thought of this word about a couple hours ago.

A word to show that it really happened. Not to be confused with figuratively.

Apparently, cats and dogs were falling from the sky last night, according to this person.
If you got this wrong, I don't blame you. I didn't know for a while, too.
Literally is not figuratively.
