A word created by ignorant pricks who couldn't manage the time to learn the English language. Suspected to originate around the early 1900s on Angel Island, where many Asian immigrants lacked proper English.
Irregardless means exactly the same thing as regardless, regardless of its negativity.
Asian Immigrant: Irregardless, I do what (I)want!
For those who are language challenged and obtuse, irregardless means really, really, regardless.
Irregardless of your opinion, the facts show that you are so wrong, Dude.
It is not a real word, and Lindsay O will lose her shit if you use it.
I use the word irregardless of the fact that Lindsay O loses her shit when I do.
According to certain actual, credible dictionaries (which I cannot name because of potential legal issues), irregardless evolved in the early 20th Century United States from the word "regardless". Frequently those who engage in hypercorrection (yes, that is a word, look it up) say that there is "no such word". However, this is misleading and ignores both the inevitable evolution of the English language as well as the authoritative comments of most English dictionaries, which do in fact recognize it as a valid colloquialism. (Most do so whilst still observing that most people do not consider it proper in "formal" English).
The argument that the word contains a double negative and and is therefore improper ignores countless other commonly used words which do the very same thing; e.g., "debone", "unravel". A similar argument could also be made for the seemingly nonsensical yet true proposition that "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing.
It also fails to take into consideration that even standardized, "proper" English has very few firm rules, that most rules of proper English have many exceptions, and that formal vocabulary, grammar, spelling, etc. vary from place to place. (Colour/color; 'quotes'/"quotes"; "punctuation inside quotes,"/"punctuation outside quotes", possessive's apostrophe/its lack of apostrophe, while/whilst, and the like.)
Of course, this does not excuse the complete and utter abuse of English by many people today; e.g. "u" for "you"...
say instead of regardless.
Irregardless of what you say, I'm not a botard
Not a word, but is commonly used in place of "regardless".

(average person) You never check an account four days before approving a payout from that account.
Why? Other departments, such as Accounts Receivable/Payable are making adjustments to these accounts as well.
(insecure know-it-all)Well, irregardless, these accounts could not possibly change much in those four days.
