Default Re: alright vs. all right

Ok, cool, thanks for the affirmation. "Alright" might well be an Americanism...I know I slip in Midwestern things from time to time, too. I just wanted to check and see if it would make anyone flail and cry out in pain, and I'm glad to see that that's not the case.

Now I'm wondering if I should use "alright" for everything, or split it out like I was (mostly) doing, with "alright" for interjections, and "all right" for states of being...
