Today's English lesson


All Right, Already!

All ready (two words) means "ready," with the word all.

Already, an adverb, means "by now," "even now," or "by then."


We were all ready to study grammar.

The plane had already left when we arrived.

Alright is a nonstandard abbreviation.

Spelling all right as two words is all right. There is no such word as "alright."
