"The origin of irregardless is not known for certain, but the consensus among references is that it is a blend of irrespective and regardless, both of which are commonly accepted standard English words."

"However, such double negatives are already found in the language in such words as debone and unravel."

I'm gonna unravel a vociferous chunk of flesh as I debone this Turkey leg irregardless of the consequences of my move to Colorado!

Happy Labor Day for those of you who don't have to work out of town on that day.

This is cracking me up in a ridiculous sort of way. The examples above are not double-negatives (irrespective, which actually means the same as regardless, and to debone means to remove the bones--You wouldn't say, I think I'll bone the fish." And unravel I suppose could technically be a double-negative, but its meaning is to undo, and it's actually a word, whereas irregardless isn't. Regardless or Irregardless? If one says, "I know I'm right irregardless of what you think," then the person actually DOES regard the other's thoughts. Not to run this into the ground, but as a teacher, misspellings and grammar errors jump out at me. Now for your next lesson: Anyone actually know the difference between its and it's? Even Disneyland screwed up this one in a window display showing an open storybook.

If you travel alot like I do, is it ok to post in other state's threads, regardless of whether you have positive or negative experiences to share?
I think so, yes, but I have gotten bashed on a few forums for daring to post there b/c I don't live there!
