regard vs regards : Common Errors in English

About regard vs regards

Business English is deadly enough without scrambling it. “As regards your downsizing plan . . .” is acceptable, if stiff. “In regard to” “and “with regard to” are also correct. But “in regards to” is nonstandard. You can also convey the same idea with “in respect to” or “with respect to,” or—simplest of all—just plain “regarding.”

regard Meaning(s)

  • (n) (usually preceded by `in') a detail or point
  • (n) paying particular notice (as to children or helpless people)
  • (n) (usually plural) a polite expression of desire for someone's welfare
  • (n) a long fixed look
  • (n) the condition of being honored (esteemed or respected or well regarded)
  • (n) a feeling of friendship and esteem
  • (n) an attitude of admiration or esteem
  • (v) deem to be
  • (v) look at attentively
  • (v) connect closely and often incriminatingly
