I've always found that "off of" is a very weird phrase. Why the hell do you need to say "of"? I think it's an American thing more than anything...

Poll coming soon.

Irregardless of that statement, I take it without regard. wat

Speaking of illiteracy, one girl at college used the term "bare tade". This translates to "very attractive", bare meaning very, and tade being tasty. I hate people.

you hear American sports commentators say it all the time: "The Bulls are coming off of a 3-game winning streak". I'm with the TS, seems like another American oddity

I don't say it myself, but it doesn't bother me when it's used. I pronounce it more like "Get off 'er my lawn," if I read it out to myself, though.

They are two different parts of speech. Off is an adverb, of is a preposition. Would you say, "I'm coming down the roof" or "I'm coming down from the roof"?

I'm talking about "off of" being used in cases where "off" would make just as much sense. In response to your example, in that kind of case, "off from" would make more sense than "off of".

Meh. it makes sense either way.

irregardless = ir (negative) regardless (negative). It's a double negative, and therefore does not make sense.

Meh. I really could care less. They are both used, but i don't see a reason that either one would be incorrect.

"He's jumping off the roof" makes sense
"He's jumping off of the roof" doesn't make sense, in my opinion
"He's jumping off from the roof" makes sense again.

I'm talking about the phrase "off of" not "irregardless." So... you know... there's that.
My sig? Nice.

"Of" indicates possession just like "from" in that case. They both grammatically make sense.

If I worry to much about the dif...... Oh shit I forgot to water my erbs. Please hold down the thought.

Hold it down properly so we can tickle and rape it later on.

I hear "off of" in really one scenario... angry. Such as "Get. Off. Of. My. Lawn!" Otherwise, I rarely hear it. I also never really say it. But it's not really weird.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!
