It’s all too easy to trip over these words:
Literally. People tend to use the word to heighten the drama of a sentence.
Example: “He literally flew out of the building.” Did he sprout wings? Then he didn’t literally fly.
Myself. People often—incorrectly—use it as a substitute for me.
Example: “Please give the completed form to Bruce or myself.” Replace “myself” with “me.”
Utilize. It’s a word that gives the impression you’re trying too hard. Use “use.” It means the same thing.
