The Grammar Grouch would like to remind you that “alright” is not a word.

We could provide you with references to various sources as backup for this statement, but . . . please take Grammar Grouch's word for it.

The correct, standard, accepted spelling is all right.

Grammar Grouch Moment

IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

© Jyn Meyer | Dreamstime.com

It's (with an apostrophe) is an abbreviation for “it is” (e.g., Baby, it's cold outside.)

Its (without an apostrophe) indicates possession (e.g., The dog chased its tail.)

Every time you write a sentence with it's in it, please do the following:

    1. Read the sentence aloud, replacing the it's with “it is”
    2. If the sentence doesn't make sense with “it is” in it, TAKE THE APOSTROPHE OUT OF “IT'S”

Thank you. Have a nice day. 🙂
