FREQUENTLY MISUSED WORDS
Example: "I accept everything you're offering, except for the fruitcake."
Sorry, but alright is incorrect. It's correctly spelled as two words: All right. However, it could be argued that alright is appropriate for dialogue. It's closer to the way it sounds. Also, nobody should beat you up for writing alright in an online forum or chat room. All right?
You can't use these spellings interchangeably: Not only are the meanings subtly different, they also SOUND different.
