A lot – it is two words! How often are you reminded of this by your English teacher? Well, to cope with this constant error the writer of the Hyperbole and a Half blog has created the Alot. Why you ask? She explains below:
The Alot is an imaginary creature that I made up to help me deal with my compulsive need to correct other people’s grammar. It kind of looks like a cross between a bear, a yak and a pug, and it has provided hours of entertainment for me in a situation where I’d normally be left feeling angry and disillusioned with the world.
