Meaning that the weather has no bearing on my intent lớn go to the store. The "regardless of whether or not" is awkward, và it feels like bad grammar, but I can"t think of a better way khổng lồ say it.

What would the proper grammar be in this case?


The grammar is fine, but there are certainly less laboured ways lớn say it!

I will go to lớn the store, whether it rains or not.

Its style is another matter, & you are right that it is more wordy than it strictly needs lớn be. If ever “omit needless words” applied, it would be here.


"Regardless of whether or not..." is correct, but it can be shortened lớn "Regardless of the weather",..." but can also be improved with "Regardless of whether it rains or not..." It does seem long, but the awkwardness is negligible, in my opinion. The idiom is like "in spite of"- the "of" is necessary; unlike "despite" which does not need the "of". "Regardless" can be replaced by "heedless", which has the same meaning & is also followed by "of".


I think that "regardless of whether or not" is not only awkward, but twice superfluous. I got "routed" here because I was searching for tư vấn for my belief that "regardless of" is a superfluous phrase, in that just about any sentence that I could render was just as effective without the word "of". The "or not" in your query just adds another layer of superfluous words. "I"ll go lớn the store regardless the weather". With words, often, less is better.
