A Correct “All Right”

I think one reason I’m slowing down on this site is that I find that I’m doing a lot of repeats. Of course I’m probably the only person on the planet who has read every single post, but still…

Well here’s one that doesn’t happen very often. I see the incorrect word “alright” so often and in such professional contexts, that I think we have an example of linguistic change here. I still don’t like it. “Already” is okay, though.

The correct form is two words: “all right.” Mom gets it correct here:

I mentioned a while back that if you want one word, use “arright.”
