    But when it is spoken (and read as well as it happens) it is 'alot', not 'a lot'.
    And are you sure its a noun?
    I thought, as it describes a noun, its an adjective?
    Or maybe i'm wrong?
    I looked it up in the dictionary

    Should "acat" be a word too then?

    Lot on its own is a noun, but i would argue that alot (and therefore 'a lot') was an adjective, because an adjective is something that describes a noun (at least, that was what some stupid poem i did at infants said).

    No, because a cat is a noun, while alot (a lot, whatever) is an adjective where i write it as alot, rather than "a lot", which could be as in a (car) lot.

    Hmm. I'd say it's a collective noun. The dictionary seemingly agrees, however I think it's clear now that you don't really care what it says in the dictionary, so you might as well call it an adjective.

    Oh, one of those.
    Yeah, that'd make sense. I forgot about collective nouns to be honest.
    But no, i don't care too much what the dictionary says, but i don't either try to intentionally go against it either.

    Indeed it is, but it seems that alot of threads go off topic when people decide its better to make an issue about me doing things my own way where there isn't one.

    Anyway, got to go.

    Yes I did, and simply the c word from one of DazYa's accounts. Although I believe corey has the most amusing rep comment ever, if he's prepared to divulge it (haven't read the whole thread yet).
    Corey's from Mr White is very funny

    That was me...I think I might also have been the person who accused Vienna of smelling of poo on the next page.

    I have no excuses - I was a newbie at the time...

    the funniest comment that someone has given for giving me 'negative' rep was for not agreeing to my arguments. cuz theyve lost and cant do anything about it so that was the last thing they did to satisfy themselves.

    lol, of course no one would ever negative rep you if you were wrong now would they?
    or because you called them a retard?
    or because you managed to piss off half the academic forum?
    no of course not.
