Well, actually, Dude, the word "escape" is an evolution
of a term, ex-cape, which meant to break
free from capture after someone had grabbed your
cloak by untying/removing it.

After witnessing this occurring firsthand, I can
say "You are just an overly-strict non-ni-" never
mind...

Anyway, if you showed Abraham Lincoln the character "W"
and asked its name, he'd enunciate
"double-vee..."

Language is not static and is changed by popular
enunciation. When you see it happening, you`ll
make the connexion...

BTW, Sutra: "irregardless" became a listed word in 1915.

I know way too many people who think that the phrase is "all intentsive purposes."

@sutra46: Another "local word" is "Disregardless" or disregardlessly... drive the grammar nazi's insane!

@Adcro: I`m hoping he`s doingthat `on purpose` for comedic effect...

And by "we" you mean you...Americans. We never say nuke-ular...EVER. Or alumi-num. There is an "i" in it.
