That's because you aren't married. You don't have to be worried about being smothered, controlled, dominated.

Nope - Just a red 's' and then if I highlight the text I see 'And it
It by t'


Very strange.

Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Do
There is nothing wrong with your screen.
Do not attempt to adjust the picture.
We are controlling transmission.
For the next hour, sit quietly and we will
control all that you see and hear.
You are about to participate in a great adventure.
You are about to experience the awe and mystery
which reaches from the inner mind to – The Outer Limits.

How are we supposed to read for comprehension anything that's not contemporary? And if it's an updated old manuscript, how do we know that guy/gal knew what they were doing?

I occasionally use the word "irregardless" when I'm being facetious. I may have to stop doing that as it seems the word actually means serious business:

Quote:
This Is What “Irregardless” Really Means (It’s a Real Word!)

... Even though 74 percent of respondents in a Grammarly poll were convinced 'irregardless' is not a word, it actually does show up in the dictionary.

It’s easy to see why 'irregardless' became so cringe-worthy. If 'ir-' means 'not' and 'regardless' means 'of no regard,' then shouldn’t it mean 'not of no regard?' That doesn’t make much sense, and it’s certainly not how people use it. ...

... According to Merriam-Webster’s (and American Heritage and Oxford dictionaries), 'irregardless' is just a non-standard version of 'regardless.' No, it didn’t just enter the dictionary because too many people started quoting Mean Girls, either. Merriam-Webster dates its first known use back to 1795.

According to Merriam-Webster, the word was part of certain American dialects in the early 20th century, likely as a combination of 'irrespective' and 'regardless'—not as the opposite of either. 'The point of ‘irregardless’ is to shut down a conversation,' Merriam-Webster lexicographer Kory Stamper tells Business Insider. 'It has a specific use in particular dialects.' ...

Don’t just start sprinkling 'irregardless' into your conversations though. Oxford still says it’s considered incorrect in standard English, and Stamper agrees you’re better off sticking with 'regardless.' 'If you use ‘irregardless,’ people will think you’re uneducated,' she says. Wouldn’t want that! ...

It still ain't no good English. Saying it's ok in certain dialects is tearing this country apart.
