I think this is an error. Thee are Latin adverbs ending in -tim, but "legitim" is not one.
That would be "legitime". I can remember "statim", 'seriatim", "verbatim".
How many others can you remember?

Dear WW: naughty of you to use some that are obviously not Latin. I'm suspicious of
"shittim", and I'm almosted convinced ";uniapishtime" is from legend of Gilgamesh. Sotta
go look that up.
Scpre one for me. TaDa!

Lots of Hebrew words end in " -im" Shittim is one.
"feminine of a derivative (only in the plural shittiym
{shit-teem'}; meaning the sticks of wood) from the
same as 'shotet' (7850); the acacia (from its scourging
thorns):--shittah, shittim. See also 'Beyth hash-Shittah'
(1029
Reminds me of ancient joke about cowboy and Indian going to hotel. Next morning room service
found cowboy on 'the best seat in the house", with an arrow through his heart. The Indian
confessed. "Me do it. Tribal law. He shittim in spring."
