In British English, 'lot' means 'a group of people'. - Are you lot coming to lunch? It can mean 'everything', too. - Have I got everything? Is that the lot? The word 'lot' here is grammatically plural. If I mean, instead, all the members of a group, then it is usually singular. - Do you know the lot that hang about the arcade? In British English, a person who is not liked is sometimes described as 'a bad lot'. He may be a bit wild, but he's not a bad lot once you get to know him. Hope that helps.

Construction lines are slightly drawn lines that are used to help in drawing all the other shapes correctly. These lines are useful in multi view drawings as they are projected from one figure to another. A good example of these lines, are those found on the graph papers.

you guys -- northeastern US, especially urban you all -- standard US when it is necessary to emphasize that "you" is meant in the plural. y'all -- southern and western US, especially rural -- in some idiolects y'all is used when referring both to one person and a group, so 'all of y'all' is sometimes heard when emphasizing that more than one person is meant. you lot -- not in the US. Sounds British to us. 'Lot' for a group of people is seldom found aside from fixed expressions (best of a bad lot)

In "you lot ", lot is used as a collective noun , so a lot of what is implied, often with a humourous unspoken meaning.
