Mind your P's and Q's

I was listening to an interview on KQED today that featured the author of a book about grammar. He cleared up two common grammar mistakes that I would like to share with you.

Mistake #1

Irregardless....This isn't a correct word. Yes, you will find it in the dictionary, but only as slang. The proper word to use is "regardless".

Importantly....The "ly" on this isn't needed. We can just use the word "important".

Okay..that was your trivia for the day. :)
