    1. I made a speech offhand.
    2. I made a speech off hand.
    3. The speech I made was offhand.
    4. I made a speech offhandedly.
    • Are the above sentences correct?
    • Are they all in same conotation?
    • Any better vocabuary in common usage can replace offhand?

    Re: offhand, off hand, offhandedly


    adjective ungraciously nonchalant or cool in manner.
    adverb without previous consideration.

    Is this what you understood by "offhand"? Or were you thinking more like "off the cuff" = doing something spontaneously and without preparation?
