Guest:Can the noun information be plural? Is it correct to write "the following information are"?
Approved answer (verified by Tanit)
But I find it interesting that you asked. Is it different in your language?
Anonymous:At least in German we differ Information (singular) and Informationen (plural).
Anonymous:So as in portuguese.
We have "Informação" (Singular) and "Informações" (Plural).
Anonymous:In french as well we make a distinction between Une information (singular) and Des informations (plural).
Anonymous:The same is in Polish: informacja (Sg) and informacje (Pl)
English seems to be stand out
Anonymous:In Czech informationsalso are
Anonymous:In arabic, we also distinguish between the use of single and plural information.
I hop that I can master English and can understand such lingual differences
Can you please suggest something?
Anonymous:In Portuguese we can use as singular or plural meaning. Informação >> singular (uma informação, a informação (= "an information", "the information"). Informações >> plural (umas informações, as informações (= "informations", "the informations").
