    I find fruit shop signs the biggest culprits for spelling mistakes, especially 'Avocado' as 'Avacado', or 'Banana' as 'Bananna'.

    I would never say anything in a thread, because I have no desire to start a fight...

    But I've seen this here, and also on lots of other forums:
    voilà - spelt wala, vala, wella, walah... List goes on. Google it if you're not sure how to spell a word!!

    I haven't read all 49 pages of this thread but:

    'A lot' is two words. 'Alot' is not a word.

    Rediculus.

    There is no 'a' in definitely.

    I just 'seen' this thread and needed to vent

    I used to get a bit enraged over "alot" occurrences... After reading this I giggle a little in the inside instead
