    Words that Are Words But Irregardless are Not Words

    Irregardless, I love this word, I know it isn't actually a word, and yet they have included it in most modern dictionaries.


    I would list more, but it would be more fun for others to list some, as I imagine there are not that many, and as i'm rather tired I ain't going to bother listing more.

    I agree. It's shameful.

    My contribution is "google," meaning "to search using Google's proprietary search engine." Even I use that, but I hate it. And that should not be a word in any dictionary. I have fully lost my faith in humanity.

    Last year my linear algebra professor used the term, "Diagonalizable" in a theorem.

    My economics professor, who happened to be from East Germany, would always rant about how Americans use the word "über" incorrectly. Not only is it somewhat out of place in the English language, but most people use it as a modifier inappropriately so über definitely needs to make the list.

    Languages evolve, and, like it or not, the biggest step in the evolution is "fake" words. 100 years from now the most studious people will probably be using words like "irregardless" on a regular basis.

    ...on the other hand I'm hoping that "bootilicious" is not being used by those same studious future people.

    Anyway, I agree with mutton. Languages can more readily be compared to a flowing river rather than to a solid rock. In 500 years, you'd most likely need to take some college courses to figure out what people are even just saying in this forum.

    It's the evolution of slang - oh my.
