I need a regular expression to distinguish two similar words

Hi, I can't track down some annoying popup in my javascript code. Can someone provide me with a regular expression to match the word "alert" but which does NOT match szalert.

so:

alert('debug 1'); // match!
szalert('debug 1'); // should NOT match

thanks
