Angry Shell aliases for regular user

Happy Holidays Everyone:

Been messing with this with no success (this is after many Google searches and man page reviews). Want to set up a simple alias such as dot = 'ls -a |grep "^\." '
I tried it in .cshrc and .profile in users home directory but when I type dot I get the following:
ksh: dot: not found

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
