- Other Translations
A spelling of ‘a lot’ in the adverbial senses of "very much or many" and "often" frequent in informal writing but not generally accepted by arbiters of English usage. When it appears intentionally in print, it is generally either representing the original spelling in a work quoted, or is an attempt by the author to convey poor education in the character using it.
From Proto-North Sarawak * alud .
