Alright 和 all right 有分別嗎?


"All right" 的意思基本上跟 "okay" 一樣: 

Do you feel all right? 
= Do you feel okay?

Leave me alone, all right?  I'm sitting the HKDSE English exam tomorrow!
= Leave me alone, okay?  I'm sitting the HKDSE English exam tomorrow!

I hope you're all right.
= I hope you're okay.   

All right, it's time we went home.
= Okay, it's time we went home. 

"Alright" 和 "all right" 的意思相同,但英語專家普遍視 "alright" 為 informal English,不適用於正式書面語。所以同學們平日還是盡量避免寫 "alright",免得考試時失分。
