Words for You – All right or Alright

Words for You

Here you’ll find answers to your questions about which of several words is  the correct word to use.

All right or Alright

Use all right when you mean “entirely correct.”

Example: Did you get your answers all right?

Use all right or alright when you mean “okay.”

Example: I saw you sweating during the meeting. Are you alright?

Usage Note: Although some dictionaries say that all right and alright are interchangeable, alright is still considered a non-standard substitute for all right.
