Our story is by Rich Russell and is titled “When Mr. Brown Met Miss Fox: A Love Story,” and for you to get the joke, you need to know that many people get confused about how to spell “all right.”

“All Right” Versus “Alright”

In Standard English, “all right” is written as two words: “all right.” Even though it’s two words, dictionaries classify the two words together as one adjective or adverb. It’s two words in these kinds of sentences:

  • The kids are all right.

  • All right, let’s go to the circus.

  • I like Squiggly. He’s all right.

Many people mistakenly spell it as one word: alright. Sometimes people even spell it that way on purpose to save space. But in proper English, it’s always two words.

“Excuse you,” she huffed.

 “Oh, I’m terribly sorry,” Mr. Brown apologized. “I didn’t realize you were all ready in line.”

 "No, I mean––how would you know if I said already (one word) or all ready (two words)?
