alot[edit]

Hello Citizen!

I think you chose a poor hot-button issue to raise, by entering "alot." I'm sure this will set off another round of prescriptivism/descriptivism debate. I encourage you to jump in with both feet.

This is not the sort of term that we want to address using {{rfv}} - that mechanism seems to be for words that look like off-the-wall protologisms, but that might have potential. On the other hand, "alot" is precisely the sort of thing that rfd is for: bringing up the policy question as to whether or not Wiktionary should prescribe anything at all. The only worse one might be ain't, which also garnered much public outcry in the later Webster editions.
