Today at work a guy kept saying "irregardless" and it really got on my nerves. I am new there and didn't want to be a dick and tell him his favorite word to use to make him sound smarter is in fact not even a word.

To the OP: I don't know. Hope that helps

This. I personally didn't find them good to read during law school either. They're not for everyone.
