Common mistake 'information' as a plural noun

Common Grammar Mistakes to Avoid

English grammar can be tricky, and even the most proficient writers and speakers can make mistakes from time to time. To help you improve your grammar skills, let's take a look at some common mistakes and how to avoid them.

Mistake #1: Treating "information" as a plural noun

Many people mistakenly believe that "information" is a plural noun because it ends in "s." However, "information" is actually a mass noun, also known as an uncountable noun. This means that it cannot be used in plural form.

Incorrect: The informations I received were helpful.

Correct: The information I received was helpful.

Mistake #2: Using the numeral "\2" as a noun

The numeral "\2" is a mass noun, or uncountable noun. Therefore, it should not be used as a singular or plural noun.

Incorrect: I have two apples and \2 oranges.

Correct: I have two apples and a few oranges.

Mistake #3: Applying the word "\3" as a plural noun

The word "\3" is a mass noun, which means it is uncountable. If you are using the word "\3" in a sentence, the preceding "\1" is probably wrong.

Incorrect: I bought three furnitures for my new house.

Correct: I bought three pieces of furniture for my new house.
