literally || In sense 2a, literally is often regarded as incorrect or as poor style, but it is an appropriate intensifier within the context of the idiom it is intensifying; other intensifiers like really and utterly would not work within the image or metaphor on which the the idiom is based: The red carpet was literally out for them. Nurses are literally worrying themselves sick trying to cope with the increased pressures of their jobs. It was literally a dream come true. || Often, the use of literally signals the relevance and punning nature of the idiom, especially when it is a cliché, as in some of the examples above. Occasionally, the effect is comic: People have been literally beside themselves with frustration. Recommendation: literally is in common use to intensify an idiom, and this is not incorrect; but beware of unintentionally bizarre or humorous effects.
