    direct vs straight

    Hi,

    Are the expressions "to go straight to the point", "to go direct to the point" and "to go directly to the point" all possible? I have found all on the Internet. Are they good and common English?

    Thanks a lot,
    JC

    They are all the same. "straight to the point" is the one that I would most expect to hear. Internet usage is not a guide to colloquial spoken usage.
