A girl on Fb put "it's irrevelant to dwell on the past"...This sentence does not make sense imo...I don't think she's using the word irrevelant correctly. Am I wrong?



Sorry Im bored and this is getting to me haha.

Yeah, she's using the wrong word. Irrelevant means not applicable. She's looking for the words pointless or unnecessary.

No. IMO irrelevant means not pertaining to something. So saying something is irrelevant with no context is dumb.

I think it makes sense. It means it's not appropriate to dwell on the past.

Quoting Sarah Bare-ah♡:" That is not what irrelevant means."

Right... so you should all inform Mariah Carey that her lyrics aren't correct.

Quoting bbbt:" Synonyms irrelative - insignificant - unimportant - immaterial None of those words mean "inappropriate" to dwell on the past. "

Quoting bbbt:" Hunny, that's not how language works. The antonym of a word does not pertain to that word's synonyms. ... [snip!] ... to the reasons I'm considering leaving him." You can't replace either of those examples with appropriate/inappropriate. "

Then could the quote mean that it doesn't matter to worry about the past? I don't know it seems to be a popular quote because of Mariah Carey. It is lyrics in her song Mine Again. I'm sure this girl on fb was just posting lyrics.

She's trying to say that it's pointless or unnecessary to dwell on the past.



Personally I would not take a language lesson from Mariah Carey.

IMO I think that someone who took voice lessons since they were 4 years old would probably know how to use words correctly. But I could be wrong this doesn't really matter. The quote made sense to me.
