There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

all right vs. alright

RobRob Posts: 39 ✭✭
Hi, everybody.

I have doubts about the usage of "all right" and "alright". In fact, the question extends for all words that can receive "prefix a", like "live" and "alive", among others.

Could someone help me explaining the rules for correct usage?

Tks!

    Looks like the same thing happens with "although" and though, huh?

    As for although and though, they are both conjunctions, and as such they are interchangeable, with no difference in meaning. Although is slightly more formal, and more likely to start a sentence.

    For example: Although I don't answer questions straight away, I will get round to them eventually.

    I don't answer questions straight away, though I will get round to them eventually.
    I don't answer questions straight away, although I will get round to them eventually.

    Although, though is also an adverb, meaning however.

    I don't answer questions straight away, I will get round to them eventually though. (Here you can't substitute "although".)

    Thanks, @Lynne.
    I thought if there would be a general rule for the cases like "live/alive", "sleep/asleep", etc.

    Although you are a single person, you can meet all our doubts. I admire you for it!

    I are taking advantage...
    May you explain the expression "get round" used for you.

    Regards!
