I will allot you 25 words or less to explain why you say that.
In the context of his sentence it was clearly incorrect.
Ahhh...then you should have quoted the context to ensure clarity.

But you have given me a good idea.  I'm going to ask my wife and friends
here in Taiwan to explain the following:

When my father died I inherited a lot.  I thought to myself that it was
a lot for one man to own.  So, my brothers and sisters drew lots to
determine how much of the lot each of us got.  I was lucky and alloted
most of the lot which is a lot of a lot to have got.
Now as homework, Ed, search the web for "Terpsichore tongue twister".
When you can get all the way through that without stumbling you might
know something about - I'm not sure what. But it surely is fun to work
your way through it.
