Immigrant - Someone who enters into a country and settles there.
How it is used: He immigrated to Singapore to join his family who had already become permanent citizens.
How do you remember that? - The 'I' for Immigrant can stand for 'In' so you need to go into another country to be an immigrant
Wow! This has really helped me! I've always thought they had the same meaning, didn't pay much attention to the difference. Thank you for clearing the confusion!
I have a question too if you don't mind!
Is there a difference between "regardless" and "irregardless"?
I've pondered over it and I thought they both meant the same.. Is that the case? If it is, is the 'IR' in irregardless redundant since IR- usually carries a negative connotation like regular vs irregular.
Thank you in advance! (=
