Definately Fixing Alot Of Americas Grammar 1 Word At A Thyme

A Lotta Frustration

with 2 comments

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. “Alot” is simply not a word. In fact, it is two words errantly joined together by a space that is missing and sorely needed.

A lot. Say it with me. “A lot.” There is absolutely no situation in which the “word” “alot” should be used, regardless of the context. It is never, ever correct, and it is always, always wrong a typo. “A lot” can mean many, many things, but in every single instance, it should be written as two separate words.

  1. Oh, thank you. Someone just posted this link on my post on the same topic. I will be sure to check out more of your posts in case I’m regularly doing anything equally as annoying! Well, doing it unintentionally, that is. ;)
