correct spelling of a word
The dictionary says the word alright is spelled correctly and not as all right. Yet, I see it used with both spellings often in books written by successful authors. Which is correct?
Back when I was in school, and dinosaurs roamed the Earth, 'alright' was an unacceptable spelling of 'all right'. Now, it is just considered non-standard. English, and most other languages, are constantly changing. I've even seen 'irregardless' in dictionaries, and this was a capital offense at one time.
