Hi Feebs,

You just corrected this mistake in my another posting. Please check the given below sentences from Collins COBUILD Dictionary. What do you say on this? I'm just asking for an explanation.

BR written: We both enjoy each other's company alot, and we know that having children will change that irrevocably.

BR written: I am having alot of fun with parties from all my previous jobs as well as the current one and lots of Christmas concerts.
alot looks very strange to me. I'm not aware that it is used in British English.

Hi Jackson

I think you've quoted wrongly. Please refer to your dictionary again and confirm that 'alot' is found in that dictionary.

Best wishes.
Hi,
as far as I know, alot is a common spelling mistake, like grammer and better then you. It seems they are extremely common... I once even saw Grammar Geek use "then" instead of "than" here in the forum. Emotion: wink
I have yet to find out if those who say "then" instead of "than" are the ones who also pronounce schwas differently before n's (station --> stay shin, instead of --> stay shun). If not, what's the reason? Then doesn't sound like than...
Wikionary on alot

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/alot

It really isn't correct. Can you quote exactly what that passage says in your dictionary in total?
