Criminal Sentence 538: Along Comes a Dictionary!

From something I'm editing:

"A little kindness goes along way."

"Along" with no space is a preposition or an adverb, as in "I ran along the path."

With a space, "a long" pairs up with a noun and describes the length of something, as in "I walked a long way."

Move along to the dictionary, please!
