What does the word "rigging" means in the following sentece"
"The sailor climbed alot into the rigging."
I believe that you are trying to write "aloft", not a lot. Aloft means to go high. The rigging of an older ship - the kind with sails - is composed of many ropes. These ropes are used to control the direction of the various sails. To say that the sailor climbed aloft into the rigging is to say that this sailor went up from the deck into the ropes, or the rigging of a ship. You could say that the sailor climbed into the rigging many times. This way, "a lot" would make sense.
