    Re: question

    Hi Lana,
    First, a lot is always two words. (There is a word allot but that's entirely different.

    A lot of = many
    Lots of = many, more informally
    *A lots of = incorrect usage.

    There were a lot of people there.
    There sure were lots of peole there. - more informal

    Why don't you try to write a sentence in which you're not sure whether to "although" or "though"?

    Re: question

    Hi Barb ,

    Is it correct to ask, "What is different between .....?
    Or should it be "What is the difference between....?

    Cheers
