Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so.

My fave is: "I could care less" instead of "I couldn't care less".

Think about the logic. If you Could care less, then you care too much (or at least, you do care). If you Couldn't care less, it means you care so little (or not at all), so that there is not much less that you can care.

Do I make myself clear??????

While we're on the subject...and this relates to ships and cruising...when did the word "debark" become acceptable? What happened to "disembark" which would be the obvious opposite to "embark"? "Debark" sounds like a description of peeling bark off of trees

i could care less about accents, only others who judge me by my southern drawl -- assuming i'm about as savvy as elliemae clampett -- or whose accents mask ideas of superiority or some sort of better than thou attitude. i've me a lot of folks with good old alabama accents i'd not like to spend five minutes with; and i've meet just as many from new york i'd rather, and do, avoid. attitude, not accent.

Do dogs bark with an accent? Do New York dogs sound more grouchy?

I was born in Brooklyn, NY. I'm very proud of my Brooklyn/NewYork/Long Island accent. Sorry if you're bothered by it, and I hope that we don't have to share a hotub on my next cruise.

Personally, I like the New York accent. I also have found New Yorkers to be quite friendly.

Thank you, Manuel. I'm not saying all New Yorkers are friendly, but most of the people I know try their best.

I have always found New Yorkers to be friendlier than many other places I have been, including my hometown!
And, Katlady, did you mean to say that your dog does not ever get off the ship. I mean, if "de" bark isn't there, what about "de" bite?
Okay, I'll stop now...I'm way too tired to be posting today!

! I know! Unfortunately, since we have so many people from other areas of the country living in Atlanta now-I get that ALL the time!

but truly the only times it REALLY bothers me is when the other person has a strong accent himself- as I previously posted of the cab driver from Boston or the guy from Oklahoma who made fun of me and who sounded as "hick" as me with his "Okie" twang. !.

For the most part though, I have met many very nice people from all over the world who never made fun of my accent.
