The sentence below contains the word “ongeacht” which I felt like to investigate a little bit. The sentence comes from a text that I have translated recently and posted on my blog.

TMG websites bevatten meestal advertenties ongeacht uw keuze.

ongeacht – irrespective of, regardless of
achten – to esteem, to respect
geacht – respected, esteemed.
Geachte Heer of Mevrouw – Dear Sir or Madam
Geachte luisteraars! – Ladies and Gentlemen!
