    OT The mad who to Chuck!

    Mr. Varney said irregardless!

    After timeless presentation of precession locution, Mr. Varney has allowed Americanish to flow from his disciplined tongue. His next trip back to the old country might perhaps be fraught with peril in the halls of the London School.
    But I will happily welcome our fellow American back. Still I am disappointed Chuck did not get this singular and perhaps even president setting event on the highlight reel! Could joining the rest of us in thinking a pitch is a throw be far off? Watching American football?

    .Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
