@chaslyfromUK "You are asking us to rely on your judgement" No I'm not. You're just trying to answer a question I'm not answering. Even if you disagreed with me about what my author intended, that would have no bearing on my question about whether there is a regional difference in usage.

comment Is “all together” a valid alternative to “altogether” in US English?
@chaslyfromUK I know "altogether" and "all together" mean different things in British, that's why I'm asking the question about whether they also mean different things in US English, because I don't want to 'correct' something that might actually be totally valid in its native language. (As far as I know, "all together" might have come to idiomatically mean "entirely" in the US.)

@HotLicks they also differ just by being uncommon, which is exactly what I'm looking for. Not just for the sake of being different, but so I can use them as names for sections of something.

comment What's the complement or corollary of “influences”?
@SnowFlake - I looked for antonyms in a few thesauruses, including that one. I couldn't find any entry that treats "influence" as a count noun, as in "The album's influences include..."
