    Probably not, but in what context? Context is required: not only because it's a forum rule, but more importantly because we can't answer questions like this without it.

    The title of your thread is not relevant to the content of your thread. Do make sure you choose a suitable title for your thread from next time up.
    Now coming back to your question:
    I don't think you can use "big money" as a replacement of "a lot of money". Actually I have never heard or seen this, not only that I don't think it's right.

    OH! i see. i want to express that "i earn a lot of money", so "a big money" means "a lot of money"?? =.=
    No you can't. "Money" is an uncountable noun, therefore you cannot have "a money."

    You can say, "I earn big money." = "i earn a lot of money"

    'Big money' is perfectly possible without 'a'. However, the sentence does not sound quite good to me*... Yeah, big money, big bucks, etc. :)

    * Well, it does sound boooooombastic, doesn't it. :) Although we all wish we could say 'I earn big money'. :)
