@djslack@magic_cave “The merging of all and right to form the one-word spelling alright is first recorded toward the end of the 19th century (unlike other similar merged spellings such as altogether and already, which date from much earlier). There is no logical reason for insisting that all right be two words when other single-word forms such as altogether have long been accepted. Nevertheless, although found widely, alright remains nonstandard.”
I’m alright with alright.
IMO, “Are you all right?” means “are all of you correct?”
Whereas, “are you alright?” means “are you (singular) ok?”
@mike808 Haha! Reminds me of when my brother was in charge of the sign in front of his church and one day he was running late and he had his teen daughters do it (both A students) and they were supposed to put up the verse, “Fight the good fight of faith”… as he drove up to the church (too late to do anything about it) the sign said “Fight the faith”. True story.
