Irregardless

This nonsense word results from confusing and combining regardless and irrespective. If people would just think about it, what's that silly ir doing there?

In technical terms, ir is an initial negative particle. So if irregardless means anything, it means "not regardless" when the person using it is trying to say the exact opposite.
