We're the smartest of the bunch, let's spell like it!Submitted by avidlifestyle on Thu, 09/13/2012 - 06:25
Okey guyz, aftar beeing ohn hear 4 yeahers....
Ron Paul people are the smartest Americans. I'm not some spelling champion, actually I suck at spelling, but please....
I still have "ALOT" to do for the Reveolution, and wake people up!
"A Lot" is the word we're loooking for. "ALOT" is NOT a word! Almost Everyone, everywhere uses the word "ALOT".
Let's be "a lot" better with this simple correct use of the word. As bad as a speller that I am, this drives me nuts seeing the smartest people of the bunch on the DP use it.
According to a grammer website:
"Though common in informal communication, alot is not a dictionary-recognized word, and it’s generally considered out of place in formal writing. If you want to be safe, make it two words—a lot. It is like any two-word phrase with the indefinite article (a) followed by a noun (lot). For instance, a cow, a cloud, and a burrito are similarly constructed phrases, but no one would write these acow, acloud, and aburrito. So why a lot is so often compounded into alot is an interesting linguistic mystery."
I know my spelling is far from perfect, but I hope, for whatever it's worth, we can become "a lot" better at defending our point of views on politics using correct grammer.
