    Unter der Rubrik "all right" steht "in Ordnung". Sollte "alright" sein. Unter "alright" steht es schon richtig. "All right" ist ein Fehler, den leider auch Engländer machen.

    all right The use of all right, or inability to see that there is anything wrong with alright, reveals one's background, upbringing, education, etc., perhaps as much as any word in the language. Alright, first recorded in 1893 (I think I shall pass alright - Durham Univ. Jrnl) is the deomtic form. It is preferred, to judge from the evidence I have assembled, by popular sources like the British magazines The Face (Kool and The Gang are alright. They put on a good show, 1986), the New Musical Express, and Sounds, the American magazine Black World, the Australian journal Southerly, the Socialist Worker, by popular singers .... and hardly ever by writers of standing .... .

    The sociological divide cammands attention.

    Laut The New Oxford Dictionary of E ist "alright" einfach eine Variante von "all right". Im British National Corpus ist das Verhältnis von "all right" zu "alright" 95% : 5%.

    Wieso soll "in Ordnung" norddeutsch sein? In Südddeutschland sagt man das auch.

    Maybe they pay too much attention to "writers of standing"?

    I found this a really accurate description of the status of the word 'alright'.

    No matter what, though, you cannot say that 'all right' is wrong.

    Sadly, the sample sentences from this OED entry cannot be written because they are in what looks like Old English. There is also a second example on record from 1230.

    Hard to imagine as an adverb today, I guess.

    alright (umgs) = all right Manche Leute halten diese Schreibweise für nicht korrekt.

    So lautet der Eintrag im Oxford Dictionary Advanced Learners!
