English - Adverb

ACTUALLY (_not comparable_) * (modal) In act or in fact; really; in truth; positively. _ACTUALLY, I had nothing to do with that incident._ * (obsolete) actively _Neither ACTUALLY […] nor passively._ — Fuller. ALTERNATIVE FORMS * actially (nonstandard) USAGE NOTES * In some other languages a word of similar spelling means "now" or "currently"; (e.g., Portuguese "atualmente", Spanish "actualmente", French "actuellement", German "aktuell", Italian "attualmente", Czech "aktuálně"). This leads many non-native speakers of English to use "actually" when they mean "now" or "currently". * Some commentators have: * remarked upon the irony that this qualifier of veracity often introduces an utter lie; and, * noted that in many cases, _actually_ functions as little more than a vacuous emphatic utterance. * In practice, ACTUALLY and its synonyms are often used to insinuate that the following is either unusual or contrary to a norm or preceding assumption, or to merely preface an overconfident opinion contrasting a previous statement or norm (as per 'vacuous emphasis' note above). _This is ACTUALLY a really beautiful song. (contrasting opinion)_ _ACTUALLY, I'm not from France - I'm from Switzerland. (contrary from assumption)_ _At the check-out, the cashier ACTUALLY greeted me for once. (contrary from norm)_ SYNONYMS * in reality * literally * really * truthfully TRANSLATIONS REFERENCES * ^ “She Literally Exploded : The _Daily Telegraph_ Infuriating Phrasebook”, _Christopher Howse and Richard Preston_ (Constable‧London, 2007; ISBN 978‒1‒84529‒675‒9), page 3 * ^ _ibidem_, page 4
