In Reply to: Teacher, go back to school - there is such a word. posted by Ken Key on September 28, 1998 at 14:21:37:

: You may not like it, but it DOES exist and is used in informal writing.

: From Websters:

:
: Main Entry: ir·re·gard·less
: Pronunciation: "ir-i-'gärd-l&s
: Function: adverb
: Etymology: probably blend of irrespective and regardless
: Date: circa 1912
: nonstandard : REGARDLESS
: usage Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators
: as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech,
: although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless
: instead.

: Regards,
: K^2 - 4/97 2.8 Atl. Blue/Beige/Beige
