For some reason I’ve always thought the word “news” had an article attached to it, i.e., “a news”. Like: “That’s a good news.” I always said. No one corrected me until today. Thank you Manny.
Is it wrong to say, “The life of the people”? Or, do you have to say, “The lives of the people”? When you use “of” in this context do the numbers (pluralization) have to match between the first noun and the last noun?
Now, when I think of counting, the first thing that comes to my mind is money. So why is the word “money” considered un-countable? Why is this wrong?: “I have a lot of monies.”
