Irregardless grated on my nerves, too, until one day I DID point it out and was informed (correctly) that it is, in fact, a word. Now whether it made it into the dictionary through common, albeit incorrect, usage is no longer relevant :(- UnwisePS from Webster.com, and note the recommendation at the end :)Ha! The concise Oxford English Dictionary doesn't list it as a real word -- that's my gold standard for CORRECT English usage (you can't trust any of them American dictionaries, they'll include anything).Tongue firmly in cheek,TanaquilPS Interesting to hear that it has been around since 1927 though...
