All Right

What is the difference between all right and alright?

By Russell, Mexico (12th Dec. 2006).

According to careful users of the language, the word
alright doesn't exist. The correct way to spell the word is all right. But the fact remains that many people spell alright as one word. While you may get away with alright in informal contexts, you may not be so lucky in formal ones. So don't push your luck. Most dictionaries do not list alright as an alternative.


• All right Mr. Joseph, I agree to your point of view. But you should take care of it.

• They are all right. Then why do you hesitate to go with them.
