All Right and Alright
The Quick AnswerIf you are writing to a pedantic audience, then use all right and not alright.
Alright and All RightBelieve it or not, the word alright is still not universally accepted as a word. Therefore, if you are writing to a pedantic audience, you should use all right instead of alright. For example:
- Are you all right?
- Everything is alright.
- All right, calm down.
