Alternate, simplified version of "all right." Often used in place of "okay" or "fine." Used almost exclusively in email, chat, video games and subtitled movies and anime by folks who slept through English.
1. "No self-respecting editor would allow 'alright' to be used in a novel, nor any English teacher would allow it in an essay, but when it comes to popular culture, I guess it's all right."

2. Akane: "Ranma, are you alright?"

Instead of saying "hello" or "hi" anymore, some socially hip people decided to use "Alright?"accompanied by the famous 'sup?' nod as a way of communicating to lesser mortals.

Some people think that when someone says "Alright?" to them, they should respond with how they are. Do not do this. You will be exposed as an uneducated idiot,
Samantha, while listening to some band I've never heard of and reading the works of Ismail Kadare and drinking Starbucks: "Alright?"

Samantha:*rolls eyes*
Me: *dies in a hole all alone with no friends*
