    'Atleast' is incorrect and is not a word that exists in English. 'At least' is the only correct version smile

      At least, I agree with you smile Thanks for your response Lady Wordsmith!

    "At least" is spelled as two words. I've never seen it spelled as one word.

      Thanks!
      In fact, I come across it many times during e-mail communication in office.. So the question.

      FatFreddysCat , I wonder how you managed to answer this question, if you did not see 'atleast' above, LOL.

    Moreover, inasmuch etc., yes. Of all the combinations I've seen, 'atleast' isn't one of them - not yet anyway (there's another one).
    Maybe one day? Try again - in about five years or so. It might have got through by then..

      There are more actually... How bout "infact"... I have seen their use and know it is on erroneous side... But then better get clarified than don't .... Thanks alancaster149... I will give it a shot five years hence... Stay on hubpages till then... smile

      'Infact' is another one you'd have to bide your time on. The way the OED (Websters in the USofA) keeps changing, you never know your luck. Watch this space...

      You will see them a lot in text and e-mails, Savio.  For many it's deliberate and quick.

    At least is two words. If someone is spelling it as "atleast" they are in error.

      Thanks JThomp42!!
      I wanted to ensure that I got it right, when I am writing articles here..

    There is no such word as "atleast."  As a matter of fact, this is the first time I've ever seen it in print.

    1. Savio Dawson profile image91
      Savio Dawsonposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      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..

  7. Mercia Collins profile image71

    atleast is incorrect, it is two words, thus, 'at least'. Savio if you are unsure about speeling et cetera use a free grammar/spelling check, or ask a question here and people will help you.

    1. Savio Dawson profile image91
      Savio Dawsonposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks Mercia for the help!
      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..

      Twilight Lawnsposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      That was a bit patronising, Mercia.  People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, unless their speeling (sic) is perfect.
      My typographical skills are dreadful, so I have Nellieanna to edit everything I write in my hubs.

  8. WalterPoon profile image78

    "Atleast" is a typo error. "At least" is correct. Can't you see the typo error?

    1. Savio Dawson profile image91
      Savio Dawsonposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Honestly, I couldn't see the typo, until the clarification.. Thanks for the response!!

    I have never seen 'atleast' as one word, I have always learned 'at least' as two words. In spell checkers, dictionaries, encyclopedias, English class, etc.

      Savio Dawsonposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      So, the obvious inference is that my English teacher was not good.... smile)))

      Talk about it Examiner - 1! Anyways like I said before, this is something I have come across in our informal corporate communication... Thanks for the clarification!

    I have never before seen it written as atleast.  I would say this is incorrect.

      Savio Dawsonposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks Sue Bailey!! I now follow it.. In fact, thanks to the response of the community, I went back and checked my yet unpublished book and sure enough found a lot of the erroneously spelled one...

  11. Twilight Lawns profile image82
    Twilight Lawnsposted 4 years ago

    Actually, Savio, I have not heard of atleast. Is there such a word?
    In what context have you seen or heard it?

    1. Savio Dawson profile image91
      Savio Dawsonposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      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.
