A lot

Spot the Error

After searching 30 minutes for a place to park, Mindy finally came across a parking lot with alot of spaces available.

If you make this spelling mistake, you’re not alone. A lot of people spell a lot as a single word. But it doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about a piece of land that’s filled with parked cars or about a large quantity of something, the words are spelled the same—a lot.
