This is the hill I will die on. Irregardless makes me as stabby as the abuse of "literally."

Nope. Just nope.

And "ain't" is also probably in the dictionary. It doesn't make it a "real" word, either.
 
2020-10-30 9:11:13 AM  
Of course it's a word. It's a vital part of my vocabulary when I need to code-switch to "moron".

There is no word in the English language that means what 'literally' used to mean.

English is defined by usage which makes it as stable and consistent as any other democracy.

My only issue is with the word "indescribable".  Seems like it's always being used as a descriptive term.

Yeah, but for all intensive purposes you still understand what they're trying to say.

What about the shedding of the Oxford Comma, or the now-standard usage of a possessive apostrophe to denote a plural, and the way that texting has made period's angry? :P

I think irregardless exists because people are thinking that it's like irrespective.

In the future, I will correct people using "regardless" with "I think you mean 'irregardless'" and watch the disaster unfold.
 
2020-10-30 9:23:39 AM  
So what is the definition?  "An alternate or slang version of 'regardless'"?  Because that is the way it's always used.

I think most language mutations start off as something that illiterate people say incorrectly, and then over time gains acceptance (memetically).

There's a story of a student whose teacher corrected him when he said "he literally died" after something happened, saying he really meant "figuratively". Student says something like "no, I literally died. Paramedics revived me. But you are figuratively an asshole for questioning it." Google is failing me.

Meh, usually it's the weepy part that leads to the angry time. Tearing up over Bored Panda stories is so damn annoying.

But, you know, I get over it.

If you play Diablo 3, angry periods are one of Adria's boss-battle attacks. :P

I thought they did that a few years ago. Don't care if it's recognized now, you still sound stupid when you say it.

If the word is used by English speakers, it is a "real" word.  I hate to tell you, but there is no Academy of English that deigns to issue pronouncements from on high to the obedient masses.  If you aren't man enough to speak a language that is strong and expansive like English, you are quite welcome to take your beta-cuck ass over to French or Italian, you mewling twatwaffle. I hear they like to have little sniveling weaklings like you around to sucer leurs couilles.  Now run along, cagna.

Language. It continues to change and evolve irregardless of attempts to literally lock it away in a tower.

Nope, won't say it, don't care, call me whatever you want. I also won't say 'stand-off-ish' instead I say distant.
