YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONSULT THIS BLOG FOR WRITING AND SPEAKING TIPS.

The people of the world are divided into two - those who say the word irregardless and those who cringe when they hear the word.

Those who cringe usually consider this a language pet peeve. The issue is that irregardless is not a word but a combination of two - regardless and irrespective. In this case, two rights combined make a wrong. Wikipedia tries to shed light on the irregardless controversy but does not really give us a clear-cut answer.

Here's my take on the matter. When I hear it, I cringe. It is just wrong to use two negative suffixes in one word. Stick to irrespective or regardless; don't combine the two.

    Or "In the half of management, I would like to..."

    Not unless I do not anymore already.
    By that time then, I disagree with the two of you both.
