    Re: "Plenty" of versus "a plenty of "

    Welcome to Using English.

    "a plenty of" is not a standard phrase. How did you see it being used?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
