Bloody. I hate it when I find out that a word/spelling that I’ve been using is incorrect. I discovered this about “alot” awhile ago. Apparently it’s not a word; it should always be “a lot”. And now I’m discovering that “alright” isn’t technically... um, all right. I’ve been using it in the same way you’d distinguish “already” and “all ready”. “Alright” seems to be a widely used spelling though, and I don’t think it’s wrong, so much as alternate. Plus, I think it looks better, so I’m going to keep using it. *snicker* Also, I was confused about “toward” and “towards”, but apparently there are no specific rules about it, it just depends upon which one you prefer. I’m sure there was some other thing I was puzzled about, too...
