Gregg's shorthand uses the same symbol for to, too and two.

Interesting. I always think of 'two' as having nothing to do with 'to' and 'too' because it is a number.

I am a compulsive googler.....I guess that's a word now....auto correct is ignoring it.

In light of the general discussion....:)

Turns out........• Irregardless is not a word but a portmanteau of regardlessand irrespective. [Note: Pinker acknowledges that certain schools of thought regard "irregardless" as simply non-standard, but he insists it should not even be granted that.]

Portmanteau huh? Who knew?

MM.....head spinning
