What is the correct use of the word "actually"? I have noticed people using the word "actually" more often than not. Will you please clarify this?
I agree with Rahul, and I'll also add that it can be used to mean "truthfully" or "in point of fact." For instance: "She may look like a blonde, but she's actually a natural brunette."
Not sure why you've been hearing it so much lately. I don't notice people overusing it, but I do notice a lot of people throwing around the adverbs "currently" and "obviously" when they're not needed -- so it might just be that your part of the country is infected with an "actually" bug.
That said, I do think it makes an excellent addition to usernames :)
