Editor’s Corner: A lot of lots

Dear Editrix,

Please cover the difference between a lot, alot, and allot.

Sincerely,

Lost with Lots

Dear Lost,

Here are some definitions for you:

· a lot: A great deal of something; an abundance.

· a lot: A place you park your car. If vacant, a place to play ball or get in trouble with your parents by getting into all kinds of shenanigans.

· allot: To assign a portion to; allocate.

· alot: This is not a word.

Sincerely,

Editrix

Kara Church
