Introduction:Some of these "misused" words and phrases we all know are wrong, but we still use them anyway. The other one or two you might actually be surprised by!
A person would think that if you put these two words together the result would be even more powerful than each separately - it certainly sounds like it when you say it out loud, right? Nope, sorry. Sadly, that is not the case. UNIQUE can't be modified, no matter how hard we try. It's either UNIQUE or it's not - TRULY or otherwise.
It may be ALL RIGHT, but it's definitely not ALRIGHT. This is yet another example of our sloppy use of the written language, or possibly a shortage of red pens available to teachers in the '70s and '80s? Regardless, it led to an entire generation of Americans (myself included, I'm embarrassed to admit) believing that that was an actual word.
I really don't know how to tell you this, but there is no such word as IRREGARDLESS. Regardless is probably what you want to say in that situation. You will note that in #2 above, that is exactly what I used in that context. When you say IRREGARDLESS instead it sort of just cancels it self out. However, if you catch one of your teachers or your boss using this word, just let it go. This word has a pretty good hold in the lexicon, and you won't win any points by telling someone they just used a non-word.
If I have to tell you what's wrong with this group of letters, then you weren't paying much attention in grade school. As you know, A LOT is two words!
These two words have nearly identical meaning, so purposely using them back to back like this just for effect makes very little sense. You may as well say "She has a new car automobile". Both are examples of being redundant.
