A word improperly used by many. As no one wants to recognize that "alot" is a valid word (see David Horvitz definition in Urban Dictionary), most spell-checkers propose to change "alot" to "allot". Unknowingly users just accept the choice.
Next time your spell checker tells you "alot" is not correct, please "add" it to your dictionary.
"I love the UD site alot." After spell checking in Outlook, you end up with "I love the UD site allot."

Top Definition
Correct definition = distribute: administer or bestow, as in small portions.

Incorrect version: An illiterate way of spelling "a lot". The most common mistake however (very common unfortunetly) is "alot".

I'm no snooty English teacher or anything, but these particular mistakes drive me crazy! What is going on with education these days?
Correct example: Given as a task; "her allotted chores"

Incorrect example: "I liek that allot"
