What about “two persons”? I have to say “two people”?

morfik

    Yes, friend. You must say: Two people. Person is a singular word.

    Bruno

    Here there’s a difference btw American English n British one,
    “Two persons” is acceptable in British English.
    Have a good 1!

hi there! When I was 18, I went to Miami Florida for vacation. When I was in the hotel with my cousin, I noticed that there was a sing about the pool’s rules. I don’t remember exactly what it said, what the thing is that instead of using the word people they used persons. With my cousin we weren’t sure if it was okay or was a grammar mistake.
Oh another thing, before watching the video I did the quiz and I scored 9 out of 10. My mistake was that I put fishes instead of fish. When I watched the video you said that fishes was allowed in some cases. I remember talking to a native speaker and I told her that bears eat fishes. Was that correct? Or Should I have said fish? I feel kind of embarrassed right now lol

Martin

6. Confusing of using Passive voice – which one is correct & why?

I would appreciate if you could do lessons to get clear on above confusions matter , it would be helpful for other viewers as well.
Thank You in advance,

Tamil EElavan

    “Students who have question” is correct because “who” isn’t the subject here. Just write it without “who” — “Students has” or “Students have”

    Everyone, No one, Everybody, Everyone — all of these are singular.

    Dose everyone have ? / Is everyone have?

    If you use Do/does in question you have to put base verb — have. If you start question with “is” you have to add -ing at the end of the verb -having.

    Passiv = be + pp. Passive voice is used mostly in
    — simple present
    — simple past
    — simple future
    — preset perfect.
    Sometimes passive is used with continuous tenses — mostly in present continuous tense. This is my observation only. But in your example — “Mentally disable Pakistani girl was arrested for blasphemy”.

midian

Hi Alex I have a question for you.I am a little curious on that matters. Please enlight me. For example: İf I have an apple I say normally I have an apple and İf I have more apples I say I have two or three apples.My question is : why Do we say three apples? I mean why do we add an (s) end of the apple word.I don’t understand this.Because the word three also does define it plural.Doesn’t it?

khanvast26

Dear Sir Alex,
I have been finding your lessons quite interesting and helpful. I teach English to my kinsmen and I enjoy doing it, just because I love this language. About plural nouns I got some questions: times ago I was reading Cambridge grammar of English and I had found that the word person has got two plural forms: people and persons. people form common use and persons for special use like v.i.p. eg. our parliament has got many persons and not people. How far is it true and consistent? email me via pemanzinga@yahoo.com.br

Pembele

thanks Alex for your help with my english lessons

Martin

As always I*m grateful to you,Alex, for this useful lesson!

petrywka1992

deer – deer
seasons – seasons
goose – geese
hypothesis – hypotheses
radius – radii
vertebra – vertebrae
phenomenon – phenomena
shelf – shelves
chief – chiefs

about person://
People vs. persons
In modern English, people is the de facto plural of person. People and person have separate Latin origins, and they came to English at different times by different paths, but there are examples of people used as a plural of person from as early as the 14th century. Persons was the original plural, and it is possible to find examples of its use in all types of writing up to the present, but it prevails only in a few contexts, most notably law and law enforcement, and in a few common phrases (e.g., persons of interest, displaced persons, missing persons). Elsewhere, it usually gives way to people.

There is an old usage prescription holding that people applies to uncountable groups of individuals (e.g., Times Square was packed with people) while persons applies to groups that are easily counted (e.g., there were four persons on the balcony). But there is no good reason for this distinction, and in any case it is not consistently borne out in real-world usage

For those who asked, I think the ‘booooooo’, after the wrongful “leafs” answer, has something to do with his reference to the “maple leafs” team. Do you recall he said something like… “This is wrong in so many different levels”? I don’t think he’s a fan, plus… the team’s name should be ‘the maple leaves’, since leaves is the correct plural form of leaf.
