    This is something you see all the time on message boards but, I've seen it so many times on the boards here in the last week I just have to say something. A lot is two words A and LOT not alot or allot. Unless you are speaking about an allotment.

    There I feel better. :)

    Now not being of the soundest back ground as far as spelling goes I use spell check when ever I can. And according to spell check its ALLOT so I can see why you see it so much.

    Spell checkers don't know the meaning. You can type their for there and the spell checker won't know it's wrong. And I'm not talking about typos anyway. Because people consistently spell it as one word.

    allot |əˈlät|
    verb ( -lotted , -lotting ) [ trans. ]
    give or apportion (something) to someone as a share or task : equal time was allotted to each | [with two objs. ] I was allotted a little room in the servants' block.
