    Thanks Patricia!

    In fact, there are many words outside print which may find its way in to English.. Like updating, rebooting (not yet)... Atleast is something I find people use more in our corporate informal communication..

    Hi Twilight Lawns,

    This is a loosely used word in our corporate communication. Informal one liners we send to our colleagues or receive from them.... That is where.. I knew atleast seemed a suspect but now have it clarified.

    The grammar check does show atleast underlined in red.. But the question was the liberal use of it in this form, irrespective... Anyways thanks for stopping by..
