Is this right:
- Mom scolded me A LOT when... (may I use scold with "a lot", or do I have to say: Scolded me BADLY) ?
- This kind of people doesn't appeal to me. (I always have problems when using "kind". THESE KINDS / THIS KIND ? of PEOPLE ARE/IS?)
Re: two questions
One could use the "a lot" form, informally. It leaves it unclear, however, whether that means "often" or "severely".
