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.

See Regardless
Asian Immigrant: Irregardless, I do what (I)want!

Pronunciation: "ir-i-'gärd-l&s
Function: adverb
Etymology: probably blend of irrespective and regardless
Date: circa 1912
nonstandard : REGARDLESS
usage Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
Irregarless of your opinion this is a word.

What insecure people say when overcompensating for their lack of understanding.

Can often be heard in popular, cult-like coffee shops where metrosexuals gather to feel important and attempt to look smug.
(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.

A word contradicting itself, though it never existed prior to 20th-century individuals who began to use it to appear sophisticated, or otherwise literate. The term "regardless," a real word, remains lacking and unknown to such sophisticates.

Ain't ain't a word and I ain't gonna say it. People told me this in kindergarden. Well, it is in the dictionary, and I'm known as the 'walking dictionary' even by college students, and I use the word ain't in everyday conversation. a person's intellect can only be judged by word usage, And I've started this rant because it truly gets under my skin to know that someone would say, 'Irregardless of what u think this is not a word.' or 'Irregardless of your opinion, the facts show that you are so wrong, Dude.' Um, if it is not a word, why did you use it to discredit it?

Sence this is supposed to be a deffinition, here goes.
Irregardless litterally means not to take into account; consider without.

Irregardless is used as regardless, but is cactually meaning to regard. So if you say 'irregardless of the fact, he is a jerk.' you're meaning 'regarding the fact, he is a jerk.' Which actually sounds better, in my opinion with the 'ir' and 'less' though, it is a mouthful.
'Irregardless the house is messy.'
'Regarding the house is messy.'
So please use 'Disregard the house, it is messy.'
