This question already has an answer here:
- Difference between 'such as' and 'like' 3 answers
Ironically, someone offered this correction:
Irregardless is a word commonly used in place of regardless or irrespective, which has caused controversy since the early twentieth century, though the word appeared in print as early as 1795. Most dictionaries list it as nonstandard or incorrect usage, and recommend that "regardless" should be used instead
Further down in the same thread, they asked, "Why do fools like you keep forgetting...", to which I replied, "Why do fools such as you keep insisting..."
So, who got it right?
Am I over-extending the lesson of my mother's pet peeve, i.e. she always corrected the TV in the '50-60s whenever she heard "Winston tastes good like a cigarette should" which properly said would have been "Winston tastes good, as a cigarette should".
Of course, today that's not seen on TV, having been replaced by "Smoking [Winston] causes lung cancer, as smoking any cigarette would".
