Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5109

"Irregardless" is some totally unnecessary combo of "irrespective" and "regardless" and while yeah language is 'dynamic' (I guess..) I would caution anyone to NOT use this bonehead term in any other setting than making a deliberate joke b/c anytime I've heard it in 'serious' use it was a semi-illiterate moron trying to sound smart.

In short: fire away with that one if you want to sound like Sarah Palin.

The word doesn't exist. Period.

*i actually often bug my one language police friend w "'Irregardless' is, like, um, even PAST 'regardless' and 'penultimate' is, like, *literally*?, like, the highest level of 'ultimate'. Seriously. Seriously though."

Hahahahaha

SirReveller, you seem like a decent fellow but I can't abide your languagist behaviour. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Don't worry. I don't go around correcting people on "...with Joe and I" into "...with Joe and me." and other common errors like some annoying know-it-all.

Irregardless is just a really funny one in particular.

Do you speak any other languages besides English, SR?

Hahahaha

Certainmauw. La langue Francais, mon ami.

Nah..and I'm sure I F up English on occasion like everyone else. If you've never misspelled "necessary" on a quick email you're either just plain lying or don't do much email hahaahha

I'm cool with that as long as I get to issue the licenses.

Neo are you the hot chick in your pic or is that your gf or is that just an aspirational kinda thing? Lol

Neo has a point though. Monolinguals tend to be more dogmatic about their language.

There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say.
