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.

That is not what irrelevant means.

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

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.
