  1. “literally,” meaning actually, really, in fact
    “He’s literally jumping up and down with joy.”
    2.“literally” meaning not actually, not really, more as a metaphor or hyperbole
    “You can literally cut the tension with a knife.”
    The contradictory meanings make the word effectively useless.

I always thought people who said things like that didn’t know what “literally” meant.

“I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it,” Jack Handy

Gr8Kat is correct. Anyone who uses “literally” in a figurative should be taken out and shot. Literally.

I read the question diferently. What is the term for a word that is its own antonym?
BTW what is a good site for looking up words I don’t know how to spell? (couldn’t remember if it was antI or AntO) Incedently,Bee, is there much call for pulling the wool over bee’s eyes?

cleave [1,]: to adhere firmly and closely or loyally and unwaveringly

cleave: [2,] to separate into distinct parts and especially into groups having divergent views

But, you already knew that.

Incidentally, “incedently” is spelled i-n-c-i-d-e-n-t-a-l-l-y.
