    At least Alright, Fred would have been better last words than what he finally said.

    I always seem to get “alright” and “all right” wrong when it comes to situations like that. But what ticks me off a little more is “alot” (it’s really “a lot” for crying out loud).

    How about ‘should of’?

    That’s right up there with being “disrespected.” Disrespect is a noun, not a verb. You show disrespect to someone, you don’t disrespect them. More sloppy English that became common usage.

    Disrespect can be a verb. Many nouns can be turned into verbs in English. Disrespect is to show a lack of respect for someone or something. And vice versa, sometimes nouns can be derived from verbs.

    My grammar is atrocious but not as bad as my great grammar.

    Perhaps he’s too sexy for grammar.

    Find the “Sexy Spelling” video on Youtube. Catchy tune, and a lot of good tips and tricks.

    “Alright” as opposed to “all right” has always confused me. I’d like to know the origin of the error, because it sure is widespread.
