Someone said Smotlz was a decent sleeper he is not a sleeper he has been a shut down closer for the last couple years and will be a stud this year as a starter I really like Thomson think he can pitch very well. Haratio Rameriez can also pitch well this year.

Dude, what's the over/under on the year that Websters finally adds Irregardless to the dictionary? 2010? 2020?

I'm going to go with never. It's not a word and doesn't make any sense. The prefix "ir-" means "not". Thus irregarless would mean "not regardless" Which makes no sense in context.

To be fair, though, wrveres only recently learned about the non-word irregardless. He uses it because he thinks it bothers me (I'm an English teacher). It doesn't, though - it actually makes my day to know I can even teach the worst student on the other side of the country.


Derek Lowe. Write it down in ink.

While irregardless is not a real word, it is a proper inference of what a real word could be. Take for example, the words "respective" and "irrespective". They mean the exact same thing, and coincidentally, they also mean the same thing as "regardless". There is a real word "disregardless" that also means the same thing as the previous mentioned words. Anyways, I would suspect "irregardless" to be a real word in the not so distant future. Personally, I hate the word, but oh well.

Really?

I alwas figured that the reason "irregardless" was a silly "word" because of the redundancy in using the prefix "ir-", with the suffix "-less"....which respective doesn't have.
