Hohfeld's original analysis included two other types of right: besides claims (or rights proper) and liberties (or privileges ), he wrote of powers , and immunities . The other two terms of Hohfeld's analysis, powers and immunities , refer to second-order liberties and claims, respectively. Powers are liberty rights regarding the modification of first-order rights, . the . Congress has certain powers to modify some of . citizens' legal rights , inasmuch as it can impose or remove legal duties. Immunities, conversely, are claim rights regarding the modification of first-order rights, . citizens have, per their Constitution , certain immunities limiting the positive powers of the . Congress to modify their legal rights. As such, immunities and powers are often subsumed within claims and liberties by later authors, or grouped together into "active rights" (liberties and powers) and "passive rights" (claims and immunities).
I’m 60 years old, and I was taught in junior high (I guess they call that middle school now?) that “alright” was the correct usage. I’m not saying it is or that I like it. I’m only saying, it has been around a long, long time. I’m surprised you seem to only notice it coming into more common usage of late, when it’s been in use for decades now. I personally use “all right,” but I do use “already” and “altogether.” This is the only way I’ve ever seen these two words used. It would seem odd to say, for instance, “He stood there in his all together!”
